Missing pieces: Some feminist science fiction from the eighties and nineties

The 60s and 70s are widely studied. The 2000s are the present and we're living in it.  But what happened in the interim? If you weren't actively reading feminist science fiction in the eighties and nineties, maybe you feel that you've missed something - I know I feel this way!  In this four session class, we'll read some significant short stories from this period and try to figure out what was happening with feminist SF. 

During the first class, I will crib heavily from <i>The Secret Feminist Cabal</i> in order to talk about what was happening in science fiction and feminist science fiction during this time.  We'll also talk about what we know of feminist science fiction and generate a list of concerns, themes and tensions/failings within the genre.

Open Forum on Money - Presented by the Institute for the Renewal of Economic Life (IREL) - Spring 2013

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Repeats every week on the 31 of January every Thursday until Thu May 23 2013 .
Thursday, January 31, 2013 - 19:00 - Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 21:00
Concerning money, there is a story to be told and a vision to behold behind the monetary riddles that haunt our post-modern world.

Location:
Macalester College (Old Main, Room 010)
1600 Grand Avenue, Saint Paul, MN

Dates & Times: Every Thursday from January 31 through May 23, 2013

All (18) sessions will convene from 7:00 to 9:00 pm:
January 31
February 7, 14, 21, 28
March 7, 14, 21, 28
April 4, 11, 18, 25
May 2, 9, 16, 23, 30

Open Forum:
These sessions are conceived of as open forums that will introduce the participant to the way money originates and how, generally, the financial order, political life and civilized culture arises from that process. From there we will explore money and economy along whatever avenues of inquiry are of interest to those attending. All are welcome, whether having attended a previous session or not. This “Open Forum” is designed for those looking for a way to break out of the current paralysis that has overtaken public discourse, practical application and conscious thinking on matters of money. It is not conceived of being a place to get financial counseling, sell a product, or impose any form of economic dogma. Rather, it is envisioned as an exercise in helping participants to think more clearly and consciously about money itself, thereby cultivating the ground for new economic ideas to arise. Participants are invited to come with their own particular topics, questions and materials to share.

The tenor of these sessions will be informal. They will start at 7 pm (promptness is helpful), and end at 9 pm, or however long people want to stay and talk.

Facilitator's experience: 
Richard Kotlarz: Richard is a seeker after the truth about money and the economic life, who has engaged in literally thousands of discussions on money-related topics with people from all walks of life, across the U.S., and in Canada and Europe. He is currently in the process of founding a monetary institute (Institute for the Renewal of Economic Life (IREL)) centered in the Twin Cities. Steven Gorg: Steven is a professional environmental engineer who has come to see that becoming truly conscious about money is the portal through which a meaningful and effective ecological and social transformation can be achieved. Richard and Steven have discovered that, concerning money, there is a story to be told and a vision to behold of which We the People are getting hardly even an inkling through conventional media, academic orthodoxy, or popular culture.

Basic Bicycle Maintenance at Cycles for Change (January)

This class is designed as a complete introduction to the basics of maintaining your bicycle yourself. Learning to fix your own bike can save you money, ensure access to reliable transportation, and be a rewarding personal experience to understand how your vehicle functions. Participants aren’t expected to know anything beforehand – the only thing you need to bring is your lovely selves, your bike if you want, and a creative desire to learn!

In addition to providing technical explanations and building mechanical knowledge and confidence, this class will attempt to provide a basic overview of the role of community bike shops throughout the country and world, as we work to build sustainable transportation movements locally and globally.

Thursdays, January 10, 17, 24, 31 - 6:00-8:30pm

Concerning money, there is a story to be told and a vision to behold behind the monetary riddles that haunt our post-modern world.

• What is the real story behind all the bad economic news?

• Why are we not richer by our burgeoning tangible wealth, instead of poorer by a snowballing financial “debt”?

• How could it be that an innocent child born in the U.S. today is already, according to the “experts,” a quarter-million dollars in “debt”? When did newborn babies borrow this money? How are they supposed to “repay” it? Is their future mortgaged before it starts? Has “original debt” replaced “original sin”?

• If every dollar in circulation is “borrowed” into existence through “loans” from private banks, where does the money to pay the “interest” come from?

• After a century of explosive growth in real economic activity, why have we not grown out of our “debt”? Is there a perverse logic built into the system that is causing us to grow into it our “debt”?

• Why in the last century have family farmers been forced off the land by financial foreclosure, or threat of foreclosure, until now those living on the farm comprise less that two-percent of the population?

• What is this “debt” burden doing in real terms to our civilization, our earth, ourselves? What is “debt” anyway? What is its effect on the psyche of generations growing up in saturation of its financial demands, ecological devastation and social disintegration?

• If I am well-educated, working hard and “playing by the rules” in the “richest country on earth,” why can I not pay my bills and/or why am I perpetually in debt?

• Has fear of financial destitution replaced fear of dying as the most dreaded eventuality in people’s lives?

• Is there hope?

These and many other monetary riddles haunt our post-modern world. Indeed, they are increasingly experienced as threatening the viability of our personal lives, the existence of civilization, and even the continuation of life on earth itself. Can we get a perspective on this? Can we turn a corner? Is there a vision on the other side?
