Manchester, N.H. - Harvard University Professor Harvey Mansfield will present a lecture entitled “Is Manliness a Virtue” at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College on Thursday, April 20, at 7:00 p.m. Free and open to the public, this event is hosted by the Kevin Harrington Student Ambassador program at the Institute.

Mansfield recently authored the book, Manliness , in which he discusses theories of gender differences. Calling upon his expertise in political philosophy, Mansfield argues that manliness seeks and welcomes drama, prefers times of war, conflict, and risk, and brings change or restores order at crucial moments. His book focuses on the importance of manliness in the political arena and other areas of society.

Copies of Manliness will be available for purchase and signing by Mansfield at the event.
