Spreading the Word: Teaching Men's Studies  Beyond the Classroom

Christopher Kilmartin, Mary Washington College, Fredericksburg, VA

ABSTRACT -This workshop will focus on strategies for reaching the male campus population in places other than the classroom. The presenter has participated in several such efforts, including:
