Professor Nancy Dowd, the Levin Chair in Family Law, at the University of Florida has published a terrific new book called The Man Question.

I am very pleased to announce that scholars who study law’s relationship to masculinities and manliness, have convened a workshop at the University of Florida in honor of Nancy’s accomplishment.

Professor Martha Fineman at Emory will provide the keynote address and confirmed speakers include Professors Frank Rudy Cooper, John Kang, Ann McGinley, Valorie Vojdik.

The event is free and all are invited.  Those interested may email me at johnmkang@gmail or Professor Rachel Rebouché.  The formal announcement follows.
