Interest Form: The Duke Men's Project Learning Community
WHAT: A 9-week community interrogating masculinity through an intersectional lens
WHO: Male-identified or masculine-of-center Duke students (Reach out if you have questions!
WHERE: Women's Center on East Campus
WHEN: 7 - 9pm on Mondays or Tuesdays


The Duke Men's Project invites you to participate in our Learning Community. The Learning Community is a nine-week long discussion group that meets weekly throughout the semester. Our goals are to examine the ways we present – or don't present – our masculinities, so we can better understand how masculinity exists both on and off our campus – often in toxic ways – and begin the work of unlearning violence. We want to explore, dissect, and construct an intersectional understanding of masculinity and manhood, as well as to create spaces that destabilize masculine privilege. Some are rarely made uncomfortable while others are made to bear the weight of their identities on a daily basis - we aim to flip that paradigm. Expect our Learning Community to model this goal.

This semester, we hope to have two sessions of the Learning Community, one at 7–9 on Mondays, and another at 7–9 on Tuesdays in the Women's Center on East Campus (under the CoffeeHouse behind Wilson Dorm). To maximize the number of people we can accommodate, please indicate your availability for both sessions.

We want to emphasize that joining the Learning Community is a weekly commitment to be taken seriously. We request that you only complete this form if you feel comfortable taking this on. Grappling with these issues and being vulnerable will be challenging, and we want to make sure that we are all committed to doing this work together. The first sessions of the Learning Community will be during the week of September 18th.

**Please fill out this interest form by 11:59PM ON WEDNESDAY 13 SEPT.**

This is intentionally an interest – not application – form; we want to know more about you and your engagement with these issues. This is not a competitive process.

Given our focus on masculinity and manhood, our programming is oriented towards engaging with male-identified or masculine-of-center students. However, The Duke Men’s Project’s core tenet is accountability - we want our work and mission to be both transparent and a continual work in progress. If you have feedback, questions, or criticism, please use this form!! We will respond to you promptly, and you can fill it out anonymously if you want.
