Pages to Changes, the SWiSHxWIDExSam Gamez Book Club is back for the fourth time and with the first fiction work: We're reading Babel, or the Necessity of Violence by R.F. Kuang, a book about Language and Empire that falls into the "dark academia" category.
The book club is open to anyone at ETH and beyond, of any gender. If you would like to join but haven't signed up yet, send us an email.
Inspired by feminist utopian designs from academic-activist and literary contexts of the 1970s, we want to invite you to think about what a feminist world would look like for you. To do this, we will read excerpts from texts, do writing exercises, and begin to approach our own utopia through writing. With Carolin Blauth and Cosima Langer.
All genders are welcome to join! After the workshop (from 5.30pm onwards), we will have an informal apéro at the fraum*, not only open to workshop participants but also anyone else who wants to join after work. We would appreciate your registration for the workshop and/or the apéro here.
