The first topic in the Parlour Reading Room introduces and explores intersectional feminist theory. Recommended materials are by Sara Ahmed, Kimberlé Crenshaw and Celeste Liddle – see below for the lists and discussion prompts.
The discussion is a fantastic and lively session with Celeste and Janet McGaw in conversation with Anwyn Hocking and Sophie Adsett – access via Vimeo on demand below.
To frame the Parlour Reading Room, we start with Sara Ahmed’s suggestion that “feminism is homework”, but – rather than something assigned by someone else – “it is a self-assignment”.1
Engage with the recommended reading, get together with your reading group to discuss the ideas using our facilitation prompts and watch the video of the discussion.
