The USA is the only country in the world where doctors routinely cut off much of the penis of newborn boys for medical reasons.
Join us Thursday, April 11 in University Hall 014 at 6:30pm for a screening of American Circumcision, a prize-winning documentary presenting notable supporters and critics of this practice at the intersection of culture, medicine, ethics, and religion.
After the film there will be discussion animated by Darcia Narvaez, Professor of Psychology at Notre Dame known for her column “Moral Landscapes” in Psychology Today and for her work on primal parenting and the concept of the evolved nest; by Ronald Goldman, Ph.D, author of Cirumcision: the Hidden Trauma and of Questioning Circumcision: A Jewish Perspective; and by Torye May, a childbirth educator from Michigan.
This event is sponsored by the Global Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme and by Triota, the Honor Society for Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
