    all looks so interesting and FUN for you and the students! And DID you wear a tie to the President's dinner?

    Hey Tena, thanks for writing, and for your words about the Age of Melting performance in Huntsville last summer; I will definitely let you know as soon as the film is ready for view / purchase - it will be at least another month, but shortly I will be releasing the audio recording; I'll keep you posted! So happy to know it would fit in with your curriculum, that's awesome.

    Hi Evalyn, Would love to know when your film is available. I saw the incredible performance you gave in Huntsville, 2013. This would make the perfect closure for a unit I am planning to close the school year with (Frankenstein, War of 1812, Arctic Exploration/Imperial-Colonial power...) Please let me know if there is a version available for purchase. Tena Laing

What the F*** is Feminism?!

One highlight (of many) for me during my Residency at Haverford so far has been leading a workshop for the Haverford Womens Center this past weekend, on the topic  ”What the F** is Feminism”.  Charged with addressing this – ahem – large topic in a two hour workshop, I was excited and a bit overwhelmed [...]
