One of my favorite things about traveling with my intergenerational feminist panel is the slumber party. Courtney and I are here holed up in the hotel with chocolate chip cookies and Airborne and I've promised her I'd post this event. It looks SO FAB!
The American Hero and the American Dream:
Reflections on Our Contemporary Political Narratives
Date: Sunday, September 28
Time: 2-4 pm
Location: The Forum, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum
In this interactive panel, academics, journalists, and comedians discuss the dominant narratives--perpetuated by both the campaigns and the media--during this unprecedented election. As they explore the ways in which these two presidential candidates and their VPs have been framed, they will also be examining the way the American public still thinks about race, class, and gender, and how this election has served to defibrillate so many beating, bleeding political hearts.
