Manly virtues in other cultures – differences and similarities

01.01.70 @ 18.00


What does it mean – manly virtues? Are they culture specific? These are the questions the panel will attempt to answer.

Panel will consist of foreign nationals living in Latvia and it will share ideas and perceptions of masculinity in their own cultures and how it compares with the existing Latvian discourse. The purpose of this discussion will be to understand how a male is viewed in different cultures in order to illustrate that there is a diverse understanding of manhood.

Till yet the practical, everyday and scientifically theoretical, cultural contexts of gender issues in Latvia seems to have been pretty separated from each other. The project ​Men’s ​Talks ​continues the mission of Discussing masculinity ​in building a ground for meeting of people with different professional backgrounds.
