Feminism & Princesses

(Minimum: 5 participants. If your section does not reach 5, your registration can be applied to any class, including a future section of this course.)
Commitment: This class has NO homework and NO outside commitment. Just show and join the conversation every week!

So many of us grew up watching and reading princess stories! Movies, books, plays--princesses were a huge part of our lives. As feminists, we sometimes struggle with how to respond to these princess narratives that influenced us.

In this class, we will discuss the ways that princess stories shaped us and share theories and responses to the good, the bad, the ugly, and the wonderful when it comes to princesses.

All classes meet live via Zoom.

Commitment: This class has NO homework and NO outside commitment. Just show and join the conversation every week!

This is a 4-week discussion group, led by Liz Boltz Ranfeld, an online educator and former English professor. Each week, we will discuss groups of characters and how they are affected by issues related to intersectional feminism: gender, orientation, race, economic background, trauma, ability/disability, and more.

We'll also analyze the use of 1980s pop culture as source material. Oh, AND we'll discuss how the values of the 1980s and 2020s show up in different ways.

This class is open to adults. Kids ages 13-16 can register for a weekly version
via Outschool.

All classes meet live via Zoom.

Writing the Pandemic

Writing the Pandemic is available upon request.

$150
1x a week for 6 weeks
(Minimum: 5 participants. If your section does not reach 5, your registration can be applied to any class, including a future section of this course.)
Commitment: This class has NO homework and NO outside commitment. Just show and join the conversation every week!

Each week, we will spend about 20 minutes discussing a theme related to the pandemic and how we have been affected by it. Then, we will participate in a 20-minute writing prompt before returning to the group to share what we wrote for about 15 minutes. Breakout rooms may be used to split into smaller groups.

Week 1: Isolation; Week 2: Loss & Grief;
Week 3: Anger; Week 4: Uncertainty;
Week 5: Pressure; Week 6: Change

Participants may find this class to be therapeutic or cathartic, but please note that this is not a support group or therapy group. (I am simply not qualified to lead such a group!) Rather, it is an opportunity for those who have been significantly affected by the pandemic to reflect and write about those experiences.
This class is taught from a pro-science, pro-vaccine, pro-mask perspective and is designed for those who have given up or lost a lot to make it through the pandemic.

All classes meet live via Zoom.
