Santiago Canyon College (SCC) will host The Bro Code: How Contemporary Culture Creates Sexist Men with Dr. Thomas Keith. His lecture will look at a segment of young, male culture called the “bro-culture” and how it is formed; why sexism and homophobia persist in the culture; and ways that this toxic culture can be disrupted.
Keith is an author, filmmaker, and educator. Currently he teaches philosophy and gender studies at California Polytechnic University, Pomona. He has also written, directed, and produced three movies: Generation M: Misogyny in Media and Culture (2008); The Bro Code: How Contemporary Culture Creates Sexist Men (2011); and The Empathy Gap: Masculinity and the Courage to Change (2015). And, he recently released a book, Masculinities in Contemporary American Culture: Confronting Complexities and Challenges of Male Identity (2017).
