Come see the curated readings from the Monterey Bay Poetry Consortium, featuring Marina Romani and Alyce di Palma.
The Theory and Philosophy Reading Group is back for our forty-first iteration with Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex! After reading Levinas, we decided to read criticisms of Levinas from Beauvoir, who challenges Levinas’s definition of woman against the backdrop of men in such a way that women seem secondary. Come read and study with us!
