Professor of Education Mark Tappan and Adrienne Carmack ’18 will present a research paper titled “From Boys to Men: Exploring Resistant Masculinities During Emerging Adulthood” at the 2016 annual conference the American Men’s Studies Association April 1. The conference is at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, March 31-April 3.

Carmack, a Presidential Scholar, worked as a Colby Academic Research Assistant (CARA) with Tappan last year as they explored ways in which young men resist and reject traditional masculine norms, which can be academically, socially, and psychologically harmful.
