Join Illinois Central College’s “Between the Lines” program as it explores two American postmodern writers, bell hooks and Edwidge Danicat, and their writings on identity and feminism. “Two Women Writers Speak” is set for Mon., Dec. 5 at 2:30 pm in Room 212C/D on the ICC East Peoria Campus.
English, Humanities, and Language Studies Professor Edwina Jordan and Adjunct Faculty Member Andrea Jordan will lead the discussion on author bell hooks’ book, Ain’t I a Woman: black women and feminism, which reviews the gender-based issues of women in the workplace. In her memoir, Brother, I am Dying, Edwidge Danicat tells of postcolonial feminism while remembering her homeland of Haiti.
“Between the Lines” is a lecture series presented by the faculty members of the English, Humanities and Language Studies Department at ICC.
