  • Feminist Reading Group

    The Women's Center for Creative Work will host an ongoing feminist reading group, meeting every other week to read and discuss books, articles and essays broadly pertaining to the subject of feminism. We are interested in exploring seminal, historical texts as well as more contemporary writings, and ones that address gender, diversity, and creative production within a feminist context. We are looking to a model that would encourage different presenters from the group, to take up leading the conversation about specific readings each week.

  • Whatever : Reading Agamben's Coming Community

    We will gather to discuss "The Coming Community" by Giorgio Agamben, which has become one of the fundamental points of reference for the political philosophy of our time. We will gather for a one-off discussion of this text, and discuss the possibility of an ongoing series exploring Agamben's thought as it is developed in "Homo Sacer," towards a potential cycle on the question of precarity. Participants are asked to read this short book in its entirety before coming to the class. We will read sections of it aloud & will also respond to writing prompts in the course of the session.

  • What Happened to Partnership Societies?

    Cultures (or Societies) that honor the Sacred Feminine tend to be partnership societies, rather than dominator societies.  In this historical talk, we will look at the role of the sacred feminine, past, present and future. Drawing on art, myth and somatic and reflective meditations of the world's sacred feminine, we will explore what is possible for humans. How did the sacred feminine get lost in human culture, and what can we do to reclaim it?

  • It's Not Too Late to Read Being & Time : A Public School Reading Group With Robert Hurley, Tom Petty & Friends

    "In order to provide the distance of present-day man from the 'desert'..., I will say of the 'desert' that it is the most complete abandonment of the concerns of the 'present-day man,' being the continuation of the 'ancient man' which the enactment of festivals regulated. He is not a return to the past; he has undergone the decay of 'present-day man' and nothing has more space within him than the devastation which it leaves--it gives to the 'desert' its 'desert-like' truth.

  • Reading Foucault's "History of Madness"

    I am looking for help reading and discussing Foucault's "History of Madness" as a group. Thinking and talking about: this work in the context of its time and the present, current attitudes towards mental and emotional distress, the psychiatric survivor movement, neurodiversity movements, incarceration systems, medicalization of mental and emotional well-being, etc!  The hope is that in getting many people together to read it we can share our varying knowledge resources and deepen our experience and understanding of the text and the topic.
