    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

So it’s my last week here at Haverford College as Friend in Residence. I have had a pretty amazing two weeks so far; check here for what I’ll be doing and where I’ll be in the coming week.

What the F*** is Feminism?!

we can do it

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 [...]

Dec 6: National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

“For every woman and girl violently attacked, we reduce our humanity. For every woman forced into unprotected sex because men demand this, we destroy dignity and pride. Every woman who has to sell her life for sex we condemn to a lifetime in prison. For every moment we remain silent, we conspire against our women. [...]

Make & Break Harbour

At the Stan Rogers Tribute last night, I sang Stan’s beautiful song “Make and Break Harbour”, also featuring my own little addition, sort of a contemporary “update” to the issues the song (written in 1976) so poignantly addresses.  Here are the words to my new section, as requested by several audience members…   37 years [...]
