The next book club will be held on Thursday, 7th of March at 7:30pm in Bewleys cafe. All are welcome!
As chosen by the last book club's attendees and those in the FB group, the book of the month is: Black Feminist Thought by Patricia Hill Collins.
**If you're planning to come to the book club, it might be wise to locate a copy of the book asap as you may have to order it online http://www.amazon.com/Black-Feminist-Thought-Consciousness-Empowerment/dp/0415964725**
Patricia Hill Collins will also be visiting Ireland in March. You can register to see her speak at UCD. More info here:
UCD have also provided two free essays on their website, which you can download from here: http://www.ucd.ie/socialjustice/newsevents/body,159635,en.html
And here's some info about the book:
"In spite of the double burden of racial and gender discrimination, African-American women have developed a rich intellectual tradition that is not widely known. In Black Feminist Thought, Patricia Hill Collins explores the words and ideas of Black feminist intellectuals as well as those African-American women outside academe. She provides an interpretive framework for the work of such prominent Black feminist thinkers as Angela Davis, bell hooks, Alice Walker, and Audre Lorde. The result is a superbly crafted book that provides the first synthetic overview of Black feminist thought"
To facilitate discussion, we'll have these ground rules:
-Everyone has the right to contribute to the discussion
-Refrain from personal attacks, criticise the idea and not the person
-Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of age, gender, race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious belief, disability, membership of the travelling community, marital status or family status.
We'll be in the back of Bewleys in the restaurant section. The reservation will be under Irish Feminist Network.
