All lovers of reading literature


We will discuss the concept of intersectionality, the overlapping of social identities, and how it articulates with poems and stories. We will focus on the role of literature to develop social consciousness and discuss how an intersectional perspective contributes to dig deep into the texts to find interrelated themes which connect gender, race, ethnicity and social class, among others.

In this reading breakfast, we intend:

▪To continue creating a reading community of lovers of literature.

▪To continue developing reading strategies to tackle the ambiguous nature of literary texts.

▪To learn about and explore intersectionality.
