Sister Outsider Poetry Workshop - On Being an Other

(Campus)

Time: 12:30-1:20 p.m.
Location: Student Union

Privilege and oppression insist on the degradation of certain identities and ways of being. This degradation is a process of “othering;” it asserts that if you do not fit neatly within social constructs then you do not belong or are less than. This workshop expands the conversation of what it means to be regarded as an other, discusses visibility, and invites us to reclaim and celebrate our identities.
