Jennifer Stuller: Ink Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology

  • 11/1/2017 7:00 p.m.
From Wonder Woman to Buffy Summers, Emma Peel to Sydney Bristow, Charlie’s Angels to The Powerpuff Girls, Superwomen are more than just love interests or sidekicks who stand by their Supermen. Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology shows how the female hero in modern mythology has broken through the boy’s club barrier of tradition and reveals the pivotal role of high-heeled crimefighters in popular culture. Featuring spies and sexuality, daddy’s girls and super-mothers, this is a comprehensive, engaging and thought-provoking guide to female detectives, meta-humans and action heroines, as well as their creators, directors, performers, and consumers.

Kathryn Smith Poetry Reading

  • 11/15/2017 7:00 p.m.
In language poet Laurie Lamon calls “both spare and sumptuous,” Book of Exodus narrates the imagined experiences of a Russian family who lived for 40 years in the Siberian taiga, utterly isolated from society. Smith’s debut collection examines wilderness, loneliness, and faith in poems that author Nance Van Winckel says “allow entry, or re-entry, to primal selves, we who once roamed a forest, ate of its bounty, and fought its beasts. And yes, in the best sense, the book also seems—as a marvelous abecedarian poem’s title proclaims—a ‘Rehearsal for the Apocalypse.’” Kathryn Smith’s poems have appeared or are forthcoming in such publications as Mid-American Review, Poetry Northwest, the Laurel Review, Rock & Sling, The Cresset, and Redivider. A graduate of Whitworth’s English department (’01), Smith received her MFA in creative writing from Eastern Washington University, and her work has been recognized with a grant from the Spokane Arts Fund.

Lisa Factora-Borchers: How to Stay in Your Lane While Still Being Intersectional: Feminism, Race, Power, & Pop Culture

  • 3/5/2018 7:00 p.m.
The U.S feminist movements has been described as waves even though the buzzword “intersectional” has to do with being at the converging point of multiple lanes. This talk takes on the ways we have learned about the “waves” of feminism and how that has brought us to the mandate of intersectionality. What have been the limitations of intersectionality? Where has it helped us? This talk looks at specific cases of feminism’s entrance into mainstream media and how the continued rise of marketplace feminism and white feminism illustrates we still have a long way to go before the waves can recede.
