East Asian Cinema--a tip of the iceberg

In this course, we will watch movies produced in different regions of East Asia (with occational snacks!). We will spend 30 to 60 minutes after each movie on discussion. All movies will be in the original languages with English subtitle. No formal educatin or previous knolwedge about the region is needed. We will meet every other week.

I do have a list of movies I could recommend but I envision this class to be a collectoive project so everyone can and should suggest movies they'd like to be included--but no Kongfu movies please. We can also decide as a group on how the class should be run.

I am looking for places in my neighborhood--cafes, libraries, etc--for us to meet. However, if no places like that can be reserved (our class does demand a set of equipment that is not easily to come by), we will probably have to meet on the University of Minnesota campus. I understand that for people who are not associated with the U, the campus can be enstranging and difficult to navigate. But please don't let that scare you away. This is a public University, and I want to invite the public in.

Backyard Kimchi Workshop

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Monday, August 19, 2013 - 18:30 - 19:30
We be making some sour goodness for our bellies, korean style.

My name is Ryan, and if you want to make some kimchi with me, come to my backyard. You bring a jar, I'll acquire the ingredients. We can look at my pretty backyard garden and discuss permaculture or fermentation or both while the veggies soften. Then we'll pack the jars with all the goodness, yum yum yum, and in a few days to a week, we'll have kimchi.

Sound good?

Just come roll by my house on the evening of August 19th, and if all goes well, we'll make us enough kimchi to nourish a horse.

peace and love,

ryan

Facilitator's experience: 
I have fermented beer, mead, kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, ginger beer, and sourdough bread, which were all great, and then some tempeh which was pretty bad :)

Lacto-Fermentation: Sauerkraut & Kimchi

Lacto-fermentation has long been a method for preserving food without refrigeration and pasteurization. This preservation is created by bacteria which thrive in an environment without oxygen and prevent the growth of harmful pathogens. Lacto-fermentation is claimed to have many health benefits, imparts a unique souring flavour to foods, and is an incredibly simple to preserve foods.

We’ll provide a few staple ingredients to make a couple variations of sauerkraut and kimchi (or a variation of the two, which has been called kraut-chi). The veggies will ferment for over a week and then we'll pack em and you can take some home to eat! If you have food stamps or extra organic produce, feel free to bring some (some acceptable produce would be cabbages, radishes, turnips, onions, garlic, ginger, horseradish, peppers, carrots, beets, burdock, parsnips). And please do not bring any fish or other meats, as we'd like to be inclusive of vegetarian/vegan diets (even tho some traditional ferments will have some dead animals in them).

If we have a group of people who are interested, we can continue meeting and creating other fermentations (kvass, gluten-free sourdough, beer or wine, fermented potatoes...many possibilities).

-Nothing is required for the first class (March 4), but it would be helpful to bring a knife or two, a cutting board, and some organic vegetables if you can. I will bring some cutting boards, some knives and two crocks for packing vegetables into (2.5 & 1 gallon sizes).
-For the second class (March 11), please bring a few jars to pack your fermented veggies to take away with you, wide mouth jars are easier to pack but any glass jars will suffice.

March 4, 4pm-6pm at Minnehaha Free Space, 3747 Minnehaha Ave S

Reading New Feminist Science Fiction: Race, Work, Embodiment

Join this facilitated reading group to discuss some really interesting new work by women writers, particularly women writers of color, focusing on race, labor and embodiment. We'll read some short stories and novel excerpts by Nisi Shawl, Andrea Hairston, L. Timmel Duchamp, Aliette De Bodard, Ekaterina Sedia and Octavia Butler (who isn't recent, but whose work informs so much recent feminist SF). We can also read material suggested by class members and/or critical writing about feminist science fiction. We will build our discussion around how race is written, how embodiment is written, how work is written. What meaning do these stories have for us as radicals? How do these stories fit within science fiction as a whole? How do they fit within feminist science fiction?

I also suggest that the group talk about our positions as readers of these stories - where are we in terms of class, race, gender, lived experience? How do these works speak to us? How shall we speak about them? On a personal level, as a white person I'd like to talk about being an accountable reader and an accountable speaker about science fiction by women of color. What does it mean, for example, that a white person is suggesting this class? How can I organize a reading group but avoid using the work of writers of color to make myself seem cultured/knowing/fashionable? In what ways can I read respectfully and honestly, recognizing my whiteness and how I profit from white supremacy?

Meetings will focus on your interests, attendees - we'll do various kinds of small group discussion, paired discussion, brainstorming, maybe even some art, collage, etc. I'll provide some plans for each class meeting so we can start generating ideas (and I'll nudge the group a little so that we keep moving), but I won't be lecturing – I’d much rather just participate in small group work and gently facilitate the class from the sidelines.

LymeVoice Minnesota- A PhotoVoice project to promote awareness of Lyme Disease in our community

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Friday, April 19, 2013 - 16:00 - 18:00
LymeVoice Minnesota- A PhotoVoice project to promote awareness of Lyme Disease in our community

LymeVoice is a PhotoVoice project created to promote awareness of the impact of Chronic Lyme Disease in our community.

What is PhotoVoice?

Photovoice is a participatory process and photographic technique used in public health, community development, and education to identify issues and act for social change. Participants take photos, write narratives, and work together to select the pictures that best capture their collective wisdom. Participants use photographs to tell their stories and may conduct outreach to raise awareness and encourage action.

More About LymeVoice:

This project will work with participants to voice their thoughts on what Chronic Lyme Disease means to them in their community and for themselves. All people are welcome to join this project and work with us online through this website if they choose. We will meet with participants on April 19th 2013 for our first workshop. We will then spend the time between our next workshop taking pictures in the field of our issue and brainstorming ways that our project can create positive change for those in the Lyme community. Our second meeting we will be writing brief narratives and sharing our photographs and then deciding the way that we would like to use our images to promote change.

You can learn more about LymeVoice and how to get involved at:
www.lymevoice.weebly.com

You may also contact Tasha Van Zandt with any questions at [email protected]
