In the spirit of consciousness raising groups *, please join the Women's Studies Program for our brown bag lunch series.
We invite members of the campus community to bring their lunch and join us. We want to use this time as an opportunity for a “meeting of minds”.
As an informal gathering, we intend to address a wide range of women's issues including current topics being discussed inside the classroom and out. The lunches provide opportunities to discuss hot topics, challenges, solutions, and to share ideas and inspirations. Join us for an informal gathering with colleagues and community members who are friends of the Women's Studies Program.
The event is FREE. Invite a friend!
This semester we will use this series of brown bag lunches as a way to prepare us for our keynote speakers at our annual conference. We will use various topics as spring boards into the broader discussion of current influences faced by students, faculty and staff of the Women's Studies Program. We will expand our knowledge by locating those, within the institution of Women's Studies, as they place themselves on the edge of their course work, teaching styles and organizing skills.
"The edge is defined as a place of indeterminancy, at once exciting and precarious. Exciting because to be on this edge is to be on the verge of discovering new possibilities for a field that may only seem to be exhausted and new ways to disrupt prevailing arrangements and relationships of power. Precarious because in the quest for an as-yet-unimagined future, there are never any guarantees." - Joan Wallace Scott, Editor, Women's Studies on the Edge, Duke Press, 2008

|* Consciousness Raising (also called awareness raising) is a form of political activism, popularized by United States feminists in the late 1960s. It often takes the form of a group of people attempting to focus the attention of a wider group of people on some cause or condition. Common issues include diseases (e.g. breast cancer, AIDS), conflicts (e.g. the Darfur genocide, global warming), movements (e.g. Greenpeace, PETA, Earth Hour), and political parties or politicians. Since informing the populace of a public concern is often regarded as the first step to changing how the institutions handle it, raising awareness is often the first activity in which any advocacy group engages.
