"Feminism and the American Mystique"
Sundays, June 2, 9 & 16 from 3-5pm

Part book club, part lecture and discussion, this class will center on feminism and its connection to american individualism, touching on other related politicized art genres. Throughout the class series we will work on diagramming our reading/discussions/research, producing a visual cosmology of the found relationships.

I love Dick by Chris Kraus

Dialectic of Sex by Shulamith Firestone

Nature by Ralph Emerson
