Summary: This is a video of Michael Kimmel, sociologist, giving a talk at Middlebury College. His talk is about gender broadly speaking, but a good majority of the talk discusses men and masculinity. Kimmel is a great public speaker. He refers to data that substantiates his claims. The video can be used in whole or in different parts and will add to a class discussion about gender. I have found his section on gender privilege the most instructive, especially the anecdote about how a male student assumed that, as a male professor, Kimmel offered an "objective" opinion. Kimmel is funny and good natured. This video is appropriate for a first year level through graduate level audience. There is some content about sexuality and some of my students have duly noted that the video is heternormative, but that said, it's a great video to begin discussions surrounding gender and gender privilege.
