Reimagining Modern Manhood

Reimagining Modern Manhood


Columbian American actor, author, and poet, Carlos Andrés Gómez, will demonstrate the multifaceted nature of masculinity through poetry and storytelling during a performance at Dickinson. “Reimagining Modern Manhood” will take place Thursday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter (ATS) Auditorium, 360 W. Louther St. The event is free and open to the public.

Gómez will engage the audience with his personal experiences regarding gender and its impact on his views of masculinity as depicted in his memoir, “Man Up.” His award-winning poetry and acting focus on transforming societal perception regarding masculinity and the pressure associated with gender norms.

As an actor, Gómez has been featured on “DEF Poetry Jam,” “Verses and Flow” and in director Spike Lee’s film “Inside Man.” His written work received the 2019 Fischer National Poetry Prize, the Atlanta Review International Poetry Prize, the Sandy Crimmins National Prize for Poetry and many others. Gómez is also a two-time International Poetry Slam Champion and a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, where he founded The Excelano Project for spoken word poetry.
