From Aphrodite to Katniss: Women in Literature

  • This event has passed.

You are invited to a cultural bilingual lecture, about the evolution of women in literature. The lecture will be about how women have been presented –by male and female writers—from Greek times to the present. From Aphrodite to Mother Mary, to Lady MacBeth, we will explore how women have been portrayed in the house, on the creative side, and their independence as human beings.

Stories are powerful, in that they reflect, shape and challenge our sense of the world. The role of women in our society has been defined, reflected, restricted, and (occasionally) challenged by the narratives we share about who women are and what they should be.

Join CGCC English Faculty Leigh Hancock for a lively, multi-media exploration of how centuries of stories have shaped the reality of American women today.

The lecture will be on Thursday, October 11 at Columbia Center for the Arts, 215 Cascade Avenue, Hood River. Reception starts at 6:30 pm and the lecture starts at 7:00 pm.

CGCC wanted to make sure language was not a barrier to learning, so there will be headset interpretation from English to Spanish.
Childcare will be provided.
This is a free event, $5 suggested donation.
