Four graduate students enrolled in WGS 5914 Feminist Theory in Spring 2019 wrote and performed “Living Beyond Southern Living (magazine): Personal Narratives from Southern Women,” in which they share their stories about embracing social justice and shedding conformity through an exploration of topics that include casting off white feminism, transitioning families through gender transition, and considering the role of mothers in our lives. Participating were Lorraine Dresch, English; Katherine Gray, English; Anne Patrick, Sociology; and Adele Williams, Creative Writing. The course was taught by Bonnie Zare, Sociology. Brittney Harris, School of Performing Arts, served as consultant for the performances, which took place at the Blacksburg Public Library on July 26 and at the Christiansburg Public Library on July 31.
