Riot Grrrl lecture for those in the New York Area!
SUNY Cortland Lecture to Focus on Young Women’s Empowerment Culture
CORTLAND, NY (02/03/2010)(readMedia)– Caroline Kaltefleiter, an associate professor of communication studies at SUNY Cortland, will give a talk on “Riot Grrrl,” a girl-centered social movement that started in Olympia, Wash., in the 1990s and has expanded globally, on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at the College.
The lecture, titled “Revolution Girl Style Now: The Riot Grrrl Network and the Coalesce of Girls’ Studies,” begins at 4:30 p.m. in Moffett Center, Room 2127, and is free and open to the public. A reception to welcome her starts at 4 p.m. in the Rozanne M. Brooks Museum, located in Moffett Center, Room 2126.
Her talk, which is free and open to the public, is part of the Rozanne M. Brooks Lecture Series at SUNY Cortland for the 2009-10 academic year, encompassing the theme of “Women’s Worlds.”
The movement’s intentional misspelling of the word girl as “grrrl” signifies an angry growl, arguing for a powerful state of being and empowerment for young women, Kaltefleiter said.
