Marriage Under Construction: A Roundtable Conversation with Sara Juli
Open to the Public, Pre-registration required on Zoom
In advance of the Redfern presentation of Burnt-Out Wife , please join us on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, 10:00 a.m. for a roundtable (or Zoomtable, if you will) discussion, when Maine-based artist Sara Juli joins panelists from Keene State College’s departments of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice, Women’s and Gender Studies, and the Wellness Center to talk about the topic of marriage in the context of Burnt-Out Wife , a performance that explores topics such as intimacy, loneliness, monogamy, and other marital taboos. The Zoomtable asks the questions: Do people marry for greater health, love, financial security, socio-cultural norms, or family and religious obligations? What are the specific historical, religious, gender and legal factors that impact who can or chooses to marry, and why? What is marriage, why is it so important, and how is it changing?
Zoomtable participants include Dr. Margaret Walsh (Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice), Dr. Patricia Pedroza Gonzaléz (Women’s and Gender Studies/American Studies), Melissa Langill (Staff Counselor/Substance Abuse Specialist, Wellness Center), and Sara Juli (American performer).
The presentation of Burnt-Out Wife was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional support is from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts.
