Paradigm Shift featured speaker "Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men" (2010) & "Feminist Men: Increasing Visibility" (2009).
Michael Kimmel is among the leading researchers and writers on men and masculinity in the world today. The author or editor of more than twenty volumes, his books include Changing Men: New Directions in Research on Men and Masculinity (1987), Men Confront Pornography (1990), The Politics of Manhood (1996), The Gender of Desire (2005) and The History of Men (2005). His documentary history, "Against the Tide: Pro-Feminist Men in the United States, 1776-1990" (Beacon, 1992), chronicled men who supported women's equality since the founding of the country.

His book, Manhood in America: A Cultural History (1996) was hailed as the definitive work on the subject. Reviewers called the book "wide-ranging, level headed, human and deeply interesting," "superb thorough, impressive and fascinating." One reviewer wrote that "Kimmel's humane, path breaking study points the way toward a redefinition of manhood that combines strength with nurturing, personal accountability, compassion and egalitarianism" while another called it "the most wide-ranging, clear-sighted, accessible book available on the mixed fortunes of masculinity in the United States." (A 10th anniversary edition was published by Oxford University Press.)

His most recent book, Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men (2008) is a best-selling investigation of young people's lives today, based on interviews with more than 400 young men, ages 16-26. Featured in major television and radio interviews, the books was widely reviewed and praised in all major media outlets. "If you've ever had a conversation with a teenage boy and wondered what on earth was going onthis book will serve you well." And feminist icon Gloria Steinem said that "Michael Kimmel's Guyland could save the humanity of many young men  and the sanity of their friends and parents." Feature film rights were optioned to Dreamworks.

Kimmel is a Professor of Sociology at SUNY Stony Brook, and lives in Brooklyn, New York with his family.

QUENTIN WALCOTT

Paradigm Shift's featured speaker "From Violence to Empowerment: Combating Domestic Violence In Your Community" (webinar 2011).  

Through his bold work, Quentin Walcott is pushing communities to redefine manhood and is building a society that embraces equality and rejects violence against women and girls as the status quo. An anti-violence activist and educator, he has spent the last 16 years addressing a critical part of the equation to stopping violence against women: men. Quentin has developed and launched some of New York City's only programs aimed at transforming bystanders, male youth, and even batterers into allies and activists against all forms of violence. Quentin is the  newly appointed CONNECT Co-Executive Director, along with Sally MacNichol, where they are working together as allies to prevent and end all forms of violence. At CONNECT he has created a wide range of programming on manhood and fatherhood that has been delivered across New York City, including inventive programs for teens. Quentin's work, vision, and activism were honored by NOW  NYC as a recipient of their 2012 Susan B. Anthony Award.

PARADIGM SHIFT: NYC'S FEMINIST COMMUNITY:

Paradigm Shift NYC is the New York City metro-area's critically acclaimed and largest feminist community group and event series. We've produced over 40 sold out lectures, discussions, screenings, and performances featuring leaders in feminist thought, that range from artists and academics to filmmakers and policy activists. Paradigm Shift NYC events challenge and inspire attendees to contribute to the feminist movement by providing a unique and welcoming platform for expression and coalition building. In early 2011, Berkeley College commissioned Paradigm Shift to produce a four-part webinar series on domestic violence, LGBTQ community building, and creating sexual empowerment. We have partnerships with over 130 progressive organizations. TimeOut New York named Paradigm Shift

"Critics' Pick" on 12 occasions, an unprecedented honor among progressive organizations.
