Media and impact: Professor Michael Flood







As we come to the end of the first week of Queensland Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month, QUT Centre for Justice member, Professor Michael Flood, continues to gather impact in the area of violence prevention.

Professor Michael Flood’s co-authored article providing a critical stocktake of ‘healthy masculinities’ programs in Victoria was published in the Journal of Men’s Studies.

Professor Flood’s article on young adult men’s attitudes towards masculinity was published in The Conversation, under the title “Aggressive? Homophobic? Stoic? Here’s what thousands of Australian men told us about modern masculinity”.

He also provided media commentary on this research to ABC Evenings, Radio 2CC, Joy Drive (Victoria), and in two further interviews on ABC radio. Flood also was interviewed on violence and pornography for recent articles in The Canberra Times and Primer.

Professor Flood’s work was profiled in QUT’s “Real Focus” series, in the article “Building Better Men”.

Professor Flood gave three presentations to practitioner audiences in the last three weeks. He spoke on “Engaging men and boys in sexual violence prevention and positive masculinities” at the conference Working with Men to End Family, Domestic & Intimate Partner Violence (Melbourne, March 26-27), on “Focusing on Perpetration: the who, how and why for prevention of gender based violence” in a commissioned webinar for Women’s Health in the South East (WHISE) (April 23), and on a panel at the DVConnect High Tea fundraiser (Brisbane, May 4).
