A few months ago, I was approached to host a Virtual Reading Group with Students for Liberty. Last night was the first reading: with introductions, an orientation to the dialogue process we will be using and then we dove into our first reading, Elizabeth Nolan Brown’s essay, Carceral Feminism and the Libertarian Alternative.
It was a lively and enlightening conversation with young people from all over the world, staying up late, or getting up early to participate. We covered a broad range of interesting ideas, as you can see from our session notes, and I am so excited to see where it goes.
Many of the readings in these sessions are inspired by our other online reading group, where we are working through an anthology of women’s rhetoric, read more about it here.
We will continue this every week until mid-December with a number of excellent readings:
