This course is NOT an extended, feel good encounter group session in which we enter into the intimate world of SNAGs (sensitive new age guys). Neither is it feminist-bashing exercise from a “men are the new victims” perspective. Rather, this course will involve an exploration of the developmental, relational and structural conditions of men’s lives in all their diversity. This means learning to recognise that while men’s lives are grounded in everyday relations with family, co-workers and countless others, the life of each and every man is part of much larger, well-established though also quite volatile conglomeration of cultural processes and well entrenched social structures.
