July Reading Group Event: Herland

Monday 1st of July from 7 till 8.30pm

Room 106, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD

In July’s session of our reading group we will be discussing Herland (1915) by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. We will attempt to link the book to this year’s theme of economics in science fiction. There should be a lot of interesting material to discuss; such as the economics of the all woman utopia (production, division of labour etc); their models of reproduction and maintenance; as well as the racist and essentialist overtones of the society depicted.

After, we will move to the Fitzroy Tavern on Charlotte Street for further discussion. All are welcome.  Please get in touch if you have any questions about the event (our email is lsfrcmail@gmail.com). If you want to let us know you’re coming, you can visit our Facebook page, or our gath.io page for the event.
