TED Talks @ RC | How Movies Teach Manhood

Event Description: TED Talks...what are they? Come find out!
The theme for the week is | How Movies Teach Manhood by Colin Stokes.

When Colin Stokes' 3-year-old son caught a glimpse of Star Wars, he was instantly obsessed. But what messages did he absorb from the sci-fi classic? Stokes asks for more movies that send positive messages to boys: that cooperation is heroic, and respecting women is as manly as defeating the villians.

* lunches will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

Event Location: RC Building 2, Room 123
