Activism & Literature Book Club - 'Talkin' Up to the White Woman'
The ANU Public Culture Network would like to invite you to a new initiative – an online monthly book club focused on discussing literature about social and political activism and protest.
To join, please register here
Discussion is casual and regular attendance is not required. Similarly, not having read the book (or whole book) does not preclude your participation. We'd love to hear your voice.
We'll build our list as we progress through the year and all suggestions for titles are welcome. Books selected are accessible from online platforms, including as e-books and from libraries.
On June 5, we will be discussing:
- Talkin' up to the White Woman: Indigenous Women and Feminism, by Aileen Moreton-Robinson (2021). Also for any extra keen reader beans: Growing up Aboriginal in Australia, by Anita Heiss (2018).
This book club is convened by Evelyn Lambeth (University of Tasmania) and Kylie Message-Jones (ANU) with massive contributions from Katrina Grant, Emily Tomlinson, Jade Croft, and Samuel Farr. Everyone is welcome. Please feel free to distribute this invitation.
Please send any questions to Kylie.Message-Jones@anu.edu.au and Evelyn.Lambeth@anu.edu.au
We look forward to seeing you!
