The University of Kansas is the place to be this year for students who want to learn about angry white men.

KU Jayhawks may now sign up for a fall 2019 course titled “Angry White Male Studies” if they’re looking to earn credit from the Humanities Department and the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Department.

The educational watchdog Campus Reform spotlighted the course Wednesday, which will be instructed by Christopher E. Forth, the Dean’s Professor of Humanities and Professor of History.

“This course charts the rise of the ‘angry white male’ in America and Britain since the 1950s, exploring the deeper sources of this emotional state while evaluating recent manifestations of male anger,” a screenshot of the class registration summary reads.

The course will also cover ways in which “dominant and subordinate masculinities” respond to “rapid change connected to modernity as well as to rights-based movements of women, people of color, homosexuals and trans individuals.



“Campus Reform reached out to both Forth and KU for comment but did not hear back in time for publishing,” the watchdog reported. “If and when a comment is received, the article will be updated.”
