Amy Hollywood’s lecture: Apophasis and Ecstasy, at the Limits of Gender

From Anonymous ’13:

Christian women write, and they write about religion. This might seem unexceptional, yet the fact that women have written over the course of
the history of Christianity is surprising given the restrictions on women’s education and religious authority that emerge as early as the 1st century and continue to play a role in Christianity today. As if to harness the possibilities engendered by women’s writing, modern scholarship repeatedly describes women’s theological production as differing in significant ways from men’s. Why? What’s at stake in insisting on these differences? And how do texts by medieval women, particularly those of the thirteenth century Dutch-speaking beguine, Hadewijch, both exemplify and resist such categorizations?

Wes ACLU Meeting

In the spirit of today’s election (WAIT, there’s an election today?!?!), Angus McLean ’16 has a message for you:

Remember when America had that tired old thing called the Constitution? It may seem a bit old fashioned, but we’re bringin’ it back.

Join the Wes ACLU for a meeting on Thursday to discuss and take action on the pertinent civil liberties issues of today, from privacy to women’s rights to anything you feel like bringing to the table.

If you want to take a metaphorical stand for your rights because you don’t feel like getting off your bed, that’s okay too! Just sign our petition.

Haven’t figured out what “GOTV” stands for yet? It’s “Generally Overcooked Tiny Vegetables”

“Is one free coffee all that stands between you and voting?” Alyssa Bonneau ’14 asks, clearly expecting you to answer “Hell yeah, yo!”:

Thinking about voting, but still on the fence about it? Sure you’re going to vote but want to feel like more of a champ when you do? This Tuesday come to Red and Black with an “I Voted” sticker and get a FREE small cup of coffee! (sorry to everyone who voted absentee)
 Sounds like a great opportunity, if you’re into drinking brown bean juice like a weirdo. Here’s some more supplementary information from Bonneau:
