Tomorrow is our first Ecofeminism Deep Dialogues discussion!  Please see below for details.  Bring a friend. Bring yourself.  Bring an open mind.
Ecofeminism: Deep Dialogues First Meeting
Where: Landis House, Dickinson College  (101 S. College Street at the corner of College and Pomfret)
When: Arrival between 4:30-4:45pm strongly recommended.  Snacks and tea will be provided – these first few minutes will give everyone a chance to say hello, grab some treats, and settle in.  Discussion will start promptly at 5pm.
What: This will be an open discussion group. In coming weeks we will likely read one article per week and discuss it in depth for about an hour.  This first meeting will explore what ecofeminism is/entails, setting up collective safe space for shared dialogue, and what participants hope to get out of their participation.  Please feel free to attend every week, or occasionally as your schedule allows.  You can always check the blog for updates throughout the semester.

Welcome 1/25/11

As many of you know, Susannah Bartlow and I will be hosting an Ecofeminist discussion group this semester, to further explore conversations begun in our Fall semester course at Dickinson College “Ecofeminism: Gender Ecology and Justice” and delve deeply into questions of the environment, gender, development, the erotic, climate change, resiliency, soil, earth, home, modernity, cyborgs, ovaries, and much more.  What does a community based on equality, sustainability, and resiliency really look like, and how can we shape our selves and our systems to construct not just what is possible, but what is necessary for a just future?
Ecofeminism Deep Dialogues
When: Mondays 4:45pm – ????
Where: Landis House and other locations

The first deep dialogue will be held at the Landis House. Please check the Ecofeminism Blogfor the next location.
Weekly topics, thoughts, outputs, and location will be posted to the blog.  New topic each week.
Light food will be provided each week with rotating/shared responsibility.

I am extending you the cordial invitation to join us Monday evenings (one or many) for deep thought, deep reflection, and much laughter.  Please pass along the invitation to friends, colleagues, and community members who may be interested.
