This year's Visions & Ventures Symposium will investigate the origins of the fear and anxiety that have shaped American public discourse in recent years. This year's theme is "(Di)visions and Ventures: Refocusing Our Lens on American Communities."
Our symposium concludes with Hanna Rosin, author of The End of Men.
Rosin is a senior editor at The Atlantic and a founder of DoubleX, Slate's women's section. She has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times, GQ, The New Republic, and The Washington Post. She is the recipient of a 2010 National Magazine Award.
In her book, The End of Men, Rosin reveals how women are no longer gaining on men— they have pulled decisively ahead. Her book explores how the shift in power dynamics between men women at every level of society impacts marriage, sex, children, work and more. Ultimately, Rosin's book helps us understand how, regardless of gender, we can adapt to the new reality and channel it for a better future.
Her free lecture will be held in O'Donnell Auditorium, located in the Rogers Center for Fine Arts at 50th Street and Huntington Ave. A book signing will follow.
