Beyond the Body? A public dialogue between bell hooks + Eve Ensler
Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm
The Auditorium at 66 West 12th Street, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011
Join bell hooks and Eve Ensler, Tony Award-winning playwright (The Vagina Monologues), performer, and activist, in a conversation about gender and lived bodies, spirituality, and feminism.
bell hooks (née Gloria Watkins) is among the leading public intellectuals of her generation. Her writings cover a broad range of topics including gender, race, teaching, and contemporary culture. According to Dr. hooks, these topics must be understood as interconnected and linked in the production of systems of oppression and class domination. This week-long residency is an opportunity for The New School Community to directly engage Dr. hooks and her commitment to education as a practice of freedom.
