Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (originally published in 1847)

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869)
This workshop series will focus on the various examples of Gender Norms & Roles, Sex & Sexuality, and Violence & Domestic Abuse in the four 2020 NICE book selections. Does Jane Eyre’s role in society always adhere to convention? Are Edward Rochester and Rhett Butler just a “bad boys,” or is there more to them than that? Does Scarlett O’Hara’s sexuality help her or hurt her as a survival mechanism? How would you describe Jo March in terms of gender roles and norms? Is Dracula the ultimate abuser? We’ll discuss these questions and more in the three sessions.
All sessions are 40-minute Zoom video meetings.
To register, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll send you invitation information for September 12’s three Zoom sessions.
Join in one or all three of our Zoom discussions! We welcome participants who love the books, participants who have only seen the movies and/or TV specials, and participants who have never heard of the books but are in it for a lively discussion. In short – we welcome anyone! These workshops are part of CEArts‘ annual NICE project (Noblesville Interdisciplinary Creativity Expo), in which we find new relevance in classic literature and create new original art of all kinds inspired by these works. The workshops will be recorded as part of our 2020 NICE podcast discussions, and as possible episodes of our arts podcast, @theroundtable. You may join as a recorded or silent participant.
