New Season of Feminism & Co. Announced

Tickets are on sale now for this year's series of Feminism & Co.  The line-up is below.

Thursday March 21: Full Contact
If you’ve ever attended a roller derby bout or witnessed a female martial artist then you know that women are not always the “softer sex.” Sport scholar Sarah Fields and aikido practitioner/feminist artist Harmony Hammond will be joined by the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls to discuss the history of women in full contact sports.

Thursday March 28: Feminist Bloggers
Why are there so many female bloggers? Is blogging a feminist activity? Join us for a lively conversation about women and social media. Ann Little (of the blog Historiann) curates this panel of experts including feminist bloggers, mommy bloggers, music bloggers and artist blogger Ellina Kevorkian.

Thursday April 4: Boobs
Voluptuous lobes of attraction or the root of women’s exploitation? Wondrous mammary systems for nourishing newborns or deadly sponges for the reception of toxins? Join science writer Florence Williams and film scholar Melinda Barlow for a rich and rounded conversation about breasts and their role in visual, medical, and maternal culture.

Thursday April 11: The Fine Art of Talking About Sex
Join us for the US premiere of Maya Gurantz’s video installation The Whore’s Dialogue. Maya Gurantz is a Los Angeles-based video and performance artist. Inspired by the storytelling women in the Marquis de Sade’s 120 Days of Sodom, Gurantz’ piece is an exploration of how women acquire and transmit sexual knowledge. (Adult content)
