Reading Groups

The Center provides funds and support for both ongoing reading groups and groups associated with particular speakers or events.

Current Groups

Feminist Fiction Reading Group

The group reads works of fiction (and sometimes non-fiction) that deal with race, class and gender, and how they impact on the changing roles of women in American society and throughout the world. We meet monthly. For further information, contact Iris Rifkin-Gainer.

José Medina's The Epistemology of Resistance: Gender and Racial Oppression, Epistemic Injustice and Resistant Imaginations

This group is facilitated by Adam Burgos (postdoctoral fellow, philosophy) and Gary Steiner (philosophy). Bucknell faculty and students will read and discuss Medina's 2012 book, The Epistemology of Resistance: Gender and Racial Oppression, Epistemic Injustice, and Resistant Imaginations (Oxford University Press, 2012). Organized by Sheila Lintott (Philosophy).
