Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist - March 2018 Library Book Discussion, sponsored by ISU Library's Committee on Diversity & Inclusion

Bad Feminist


Library Book Discussion Series, March-April 2018


-Sponsored by Committee on Diversity & Inclusion, ISU Library


Noted author and critic Roxane Gay will visit ISU to lecture on her best-seller collection of essays entitled "Bad Feminist" on April 5, 2018 at 8:00 pm in Great Hall, Memorial Union.

In preparation for her lecture, the Library's Committee on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is organizing and leading a discussion group comprised of library staff on selected essays from Bad Feminist.  We will explore issues of race, gender, sexuality, pop culture, films & tv, immigration, feminism, intersectionality, and much more.  

The discussion group will meet weekly, and each week will explore a different topic area. The topics to be covered include:

  • Introduction to Bad Feminist & Identity
  • Gender & Sexuality
  • Race & Entertainment
  • Politics, Gender & Race
  • Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist ISU Lecture

Each session will be a facilitated discussion of selected essays, led by a member of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee. Participants should read our Ground Rules prior to the sessions.

This LibGuide provides information on the discussion series and Roxane Gay's writings. Throughout the discussion series, participants can also help compile our #BadFeministSyllabus, an annotated bibliography of resources related to topics covered by the group.
