Two years in the making, our GWS Bodies of Women Conference happens this week! Six amazing scholars—Cecelia Cavanaugh, Lisa Olsen Tait, Sherine Hafez, Joan Chrisler, Kirsten Pullen, and Elizabeth Daniels—will arrive on campus on Thursday and Friday to teach us about the wonderful things bodies of women can do. We planned the conference to make it easy for GWS STUDENTS and FACULTY to attend:
- We start at 10:00 on Thursday with a service project for Days for Girls. Volunteer your time and talents to cut out material for shields, liners, and draw-bags for the DfG period packs.
- Speaker sessions start on the hour and end in 50 minutes 1:00-4:00 on Thursday (in the Kennedy Center) and 10:00-1:00 on Friday (in the JFSB), so you can slip in and out between your classes. See the complete schedule below.
- We will hold discussion groups with the speakers at 4:00 on Thursday and 2:00 on Friday to talk about organizing bodies of women and valuing women’s bodies.
- Join us on Thursday evening at 5:30 and 8:00 in the Alice Louise Reynolds Auditorium for Afghan Cycles, a film about bodies of women, and Shout Gladi Gladi, a film about women’s bodies. Register for FREE tickets at peeryfilms.com.
Once upon a time, at a Prominent University, a young woman wanted to help people see their lives as stories they tell themselves and each other. Once upon a time, at the same Prominent University, the chair of its English department, who was also the young woman’s fiancé, wanted to indulge her. Once upon a time, at (yes) a Prominent University, a cheerful and charming Italian bookbinder thought the young woman’s story and his own might become a single saga.
The Bookbinder’s Tale is a love triangle that travels in and out of its three characters’ fables, seen through one another’s eyes. Circumstances that seemed set become fluid, and futures shift with startling speed. By turns funny, breathtaking, and touching, it invites us to return to Story – our oldest and best home. Suitable for all audiences, but is recommended for ages 16+. The lead is BYU Acting graduate Mariah Bowles. Go ahead and support her in the show’s final weekend at the Hive.
