The course, capped at 20, is taught through the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research. The institute was founded a year ago and is a collective of recently minted scholars who offer six-week discussion-based seminars on the academic topics they know and love.
Writing on the Body will be taught by Abby Kluchin at Singularity and Company in Dumbo. (18 Bridge Street). Class will be held from 7 to 9 pm on Thursdays for six weeks beginning October 4. Tuition fee is $315.
The body has been a problem in dominant Western and philosophical and religious narratives for millennia. Many feminist theorists agree that devaluation of the body is intimately related to its frequent association with femininity. This inter-disciplinary course examines the ways the body has been read and written in philosophy, theology, history, literate and feminist theory.
