Hanna Rosin, author of New York Times bestselling book “The End of Men: And The Rise of Women” and host of the National Public Radio podcast “Invisibilia,” will speak at Utah Valley University on March 1 at 11 a.m. in the Classroom Building lecture hall (CB 101B) as part of the UVU Presidential Lecture Series.

Much of Rosin’s work has focused on women’s issues, modern parenting norms and gender roles. The topic of her lecture is “The End of Men: Some Reactions and Reconsiderations,” and the discussion will explore what has changed since the publication of Rosin’s book, including the events of the 2016 election season.

Rosin currently co-hosts the NPR podcast “Invisibilia” with Alix Spiegel and Lulu Miller. The program explores the invisible forces — things like ideas, beliefs, assumptions and emotions — that shape human behavior.

Rosin was born in Israel and immigrated to the United States at the age of five, growing up in a working-class immigrant neighborhood in Queens, New York. Rosin attended Stanford University and has written for The Washington Post, The New Yorker, GQ, and New York magazine, in addition to positions at The New Republic, Slate, and The Atlantic.

Rosin is the author of two books, including “The End of Men: And The Rise of Women” and “God’s Harvard: A Christian College on a Mission to Save America.” She is married to David Plotz, CEO at Atlas Obscura. They live in Washington, D.C. with their three children.

The Presidential Lecture Series, sponsored by the UVU Office of the President and the Office of Engaged Learning, enhances the academic exchange by bringing to campus the nation’s best scholars to speak to UVU students, faculty, staff and, the public. This event is free and open to the public.
