Carolina Creative Campus – The Gender Project


Now that wrapping paper has been ripped, candles have been lit, and noise makers have been sounded I wanted to recommend some winter break reading.

Late: A Cowboy Song, a play by Sarah Ruhl, is an understated examination of the feminine spirit. It is also a subtle look at the definition of gender (perspective, tradition, ritual). Not so subtly the play also explores the concept of time. It is a quick read, but engaging none the less.

I also recommend Ruhl’s Eurydice, a re-imagining of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Both can be found in The Clean House and Other Plays by Sarah Ruhl (ISBN 1559362669 9781559362665 in Davis Library, call number PS3618.U48 C57 2006).

In other news I will be leaving for a semester abroad this week. I will be studying in Dublin, Ireland and will be posting my gender thoughts from there. Continue to participate, and have a fantastic spring semester.
