For those of you that follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I “live tweeted” the last Think and Drink event held at Naked City, by Humanities Washington. The event was not just standing room only – it was no room at all, as by the time it started there was a line going out Naked City’s front door turning people away. These events are pretty amazing, and you definitely don’t want to miss out. Here’s all the information you need to know about the next Think and Drink, held May 9th at Naked City Brewery and Taphouse in Greenwood (from the press release):
Humanities Washington’s ongoing Think & Drink discussion series returns to Greenwood’s Naked City Brewery & Taphouse May 9 for Harlots & Heroines: Images of Women in Media and Pop Culture. Scholars Jennifer K. Stuller and Amy Peloff and moderator Marcie Sillman will lead a conversation about the media’s portrayal of women – from Wonder Woman and Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Lady Gaga and the Kardashians – and ask what these depictions say about our society and its conceptions of gender, sexuality and politics.
Stuller is the author of Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology and co-founder and programing director of Seattle’s GeekGirlCon. Peloff is the associate director of the Comparative History of Ideas program at the University of Washington, where she teaches gender, women and sexuality studies. Sillman is a senior reporter with KUOW who produces in-depth news segments on Northwest life and culture.
This free event begins at 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 9, at Naked City Brewery & Taphouse, 8564 Greenwood Ave. N., Seattle, WA.
Humanities Washington’s Think & Drink program brings hosted conversations on provocative topics and new ideas to pubs and tasting rooms around the state. For more information, please visit humanities.org/programs/think-drink.
From my own personal experience, I’m able to tell you that you need to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes early to get a seat (45 minutes early would be more ideal). But hey, that gives you time to order some dinner first from Naked City’s new head chef, Tessa Roberts.
