Domestic and Public Spheres of Resistance

Beyoncé’s 2016 album “Lemonade” addresses issues faced by many women around the world, including domestic violence, infidelity, and racial oppression. Join students from Hong Kong, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, and the U.S.A. for a thought-provoking discussion about the private and public pains of women and ways to resist gender inequality and racial oppression. We will discuss Beyoncé’s “Pray you catch me” and “Formation” from her 2016 album Lemonade and examine ways to resist patriarchal dominance in the private and public sphere.
All are welcome.
