Description

What does it mean to be a father in today’s world? In the past, people have often perceived parenting as a matter of the private sphere. Now the boundary between public and private life has eroded in various ways.

Dr. Ed Chamberlain (School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences) provides a discussion of these experiences and the connections between fatherhood, sexuality, and struggle including the challenges faced by gay fathers, famous dads, and parents who are economically disadvantaged.

Admission to Scholarly Selections lectures and the museum is free during Third Thursdays, from 3–8pm.
