Generation M: In connection to his film Generation M, this particular theme focuses on media’s representations of women and how these depictions affect women and men. From advertising to TV, film, and music, Generation M traces the many ways that women are negatively portrayed in mass media and the consequences that arise from these portrayals.
The Bro Code: In The Bro Code, Dr. Keith centers the talk around “bro-culture,” a particular segment of young, male culture that celebrates sexism and homophobia and contributes to high rates of sexual assault and rape on high school and college campuses throughout America. In The Bro Code, Keith deconstructs how bro-culture is formed, why sexism and homophobia proliferate the culture, and ways in which this toxic culture can be disrupted.
The Empathy Gap: In this particular talk, Dr. Keith spotlights the many ways that boys and men are trained to lack empathy for women in contemporary American culture. Starting in boyhood, Keith traces the specific ways that traits like empathy, compassion, and love are systematically driven out of males and how this training harms men, women, and relationships. The talk features ideas about how to create, nurture, and expand empathy in boys and men.
