Russian Poetry Reading @ 320 Lavery Hall
Nov 1 @ 8:00 pm – Nov 2 @ 12:59 am

Sergey Gandlevsky is widely recognized as a leading Russian poet. An integral member of the ’70s generation, Gandlevsky was one of the underground Russian poets who began by writing only for themselves and their circles of friends during the Brezhnev era. This generation forged new directions in Russian poetry, unfettered by the pressures that burdened Russian writers during the Soviet period. He has published more than a dozen books of poetry, memoirs, and fiction. He has won both the Little Booker Prize and the Anti-Booker Prize in 1996 for his poetry and prose, an irony he relishes. Serge has been called both formal and populist, connecting contemporary subjects matter Russia’s deep poetical traditions. Acknowledging the influences of Russian literary greats such as Nabokov, Pushkin, and Lermontov, Gandlevski is able to integrate Soviet-era slang and pop-cultural references, creating verse that is uniquely his.

“Using Magic to Reimagine Womanhood: Gender, Witchcraft, and Identity Politics” @ Fralin Auditorium
Nov 8 @ 7:00 pm – 11:59 pm

Through Feminist Eyes series welcomes Dr. Ashley Reichelmann, Assistant Professor of Sociology.

This lecture will explore how women make sense of their gender through witchcraft. Using original data collected through interviews with women who self-define as witches, we will discuss the category of “witch,” how it interacts with gender to produce a fluid identity, and how its interpretive lens allows for them re-define what it means to be a “woman” in modern society.
