Season One

Our curriculum is organized chronologically – think of it like a survey course on the History of Civilization in college, but with these guiding questions: How did patriarchy develop? How did it function at each particular time in history? Who has challenged patriarchy, and what are their arguments? Each week a different reading partner and I read a book and record our discussion, like a mini-version of the enriching, illuminating class discussions I had with my classmates in graduate school. I recruited readers of different ages, races, religions, socioeconomic backgrounds, education levels, career paths, and sexual orientations because I wanted as many different points of view as possible to inform my learning and to bring unique wisdom to the texts. All these readers are smart, insightful, generous-hearted readers, and I have been awed by their intelligence and insight.
