The NGender book group is back for the academic year 2014-15! Taking place on the first Tuesdays of November, December, February and March at 5-6.30pm.
Thanks to all who attended November’s group, where we had a fascinating discussion about the highly recommended book Playing the Whore by Melissa Gira Grant.
December’s book is Bad Feminist by Roxanne Gay. We suggest that you buy the book for a reasonable price online, but if that is not possible you can read these PDF extracts: ngender bad feminist 1 and ngender bad feminist 2. We will meet on Tuesday 2nd December, 5-6.30pm in Fulton 110 to discuss the book.
The aim of the book group is to discuss non-academic, non-fiction short texts that focus on feminism, gender and sexuality. Everyone is welcome whatever your level/area of research and whatever your gender. Come and discuss popular debates around gender and sexuality in a friendly, non-judgmental space with soft drinks, wine and nibbles.
The upcoming dates for 2015 are as follows (suggestions for books to read for these are welcome):
- Tuesday 3rd February, 5-6.30pm, room TBC
- Tuesday 3rd March, 5-6.30pm, room TBC
