Including Women’s Knowledge and Experience in the Public Narrative
This lecture examines the role of women’s knowledge and storytelling in developing identity, and puts it in a more global historical narrative. It seems that women’s knowledge and ability to tell stories contribute in creating deep connections within its community. The pieces discussed in the lecture include several bodies of work that address invisible labors, domestic space and its influence on personhood, as well as the essentiality of family life.
