The deadline for bids to host ICMI18 expired two days ago, we’re delighted to report that the fourth International Conference on Men’s Issues – ICMI18 – will definitely take place next summer. It will again last for three days, Friday – Sunday. Some details are still being ironed out. The venue, dates, and other key details will be revealed in coming weeks. We confidently predict another highly successful conference. We’ve just set up the conference website, why not sign up for automatic notifications of new blog pieces?
We’re still in the early stages of booking speakers, but some important figures have already agreed to attend and speak.
We’d much appreciate your suggestions on potential speakers, and how the conference format might change so as to improve the delegates’ conference experience. We’re prepared to reduce the number of speakers to accommodate good suggestions – there were 20 speakers at ICMI16, 18 at ICMI17. As a guide to the broad ICMI format, the timetable for ICMI16 (London) is here. Please supply your suggestions no later than 17:00 GMT, 25 August. Thanks.
Next month we’ll start publishing the first of The Buchanan Files, a series of short videos inspired by The Fiamengo File. The videos will not be lengthy, but will be about key topics, with links to supporting materials. They will have links to plenty of materials for those with an interest in exploring individual topics further. Topics currently being considered for the series include, in no particular order:
- Feminism, gynocentrism, misandry
- Male Genital Mutilation
- Domestic violence
- The state’s war on the nuclear family
- Healthcare provision
- Prison sentencing
- The Red Pill
- Karen Straughan, Janice Fiamengo, Janet Bloomfield
- William Collins
- An address to university students and academics
- If the patriarchy is in charge, why are there Gender Studies courses?
Because of the workload imposed by preparations for ICMI18 and The Buchanan Files, posting pieces onto this blog will have to go on the back burner in coming weeks. Please accept our apologies for not being able to respond to all emails, normal service will resume at some point. The volume of emails we receive these days is difficult to handle even in normal circumstances.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
