Circle 3: Schedule Wednesday 29 July 2020

All times in CET


08:00 – 09:00 Morning Coffee

Join for informal opening of the day




Others09:30 – 11:30 Hosting Our Others

I invite participants for a journey to the disharmony within each of us, the feeling of “otherness” with our selves, and to attempt to practice hospitality towards it. Share a personal artifact – a story, a text that we have written or read, a photograph, or any other artifact which captures our experience of meeting with one of our own internal “others”.

NSU- Singlehood Poster -FINAL

12:00 – 13:30 Singlehood & Companionship (session 2)

The increased number of singles has invoked public discussions worldwide. Geopolitical, economic, and socio-cultural contexts influence the ways singlehood are perceived and experienced. Join one of or all three discussions on pre-assigned texts around singlehood.

Refugees16:30 – 18:00 The Refugee and the Problem of Hospitality

What is the refugee problem? What do we owe to refugees? Who is the ‘we’ that owe something to refugees? Is hospitality a matter of generosity or a matter of rights?

Those are some of the questions that will be addressed in this trace.

19:00 – 22:00 Traditional Evening: Reading a Play and Drinking Wine

Join in Turku or from your own home through Zoom..

One tradition in the NSU Feminist Circle has been to read a Play together. Sitting together on a beach or in nature, with wine, and everyone reads a part of the play out loud as long as (s)he likes, and then the next person takes over. Reading together, listening to each other’s voices, has been one of the highlights of the summer session. (At least, according to some…)

This year will be different, as we will join from our homes, our own pieces of nature, or from Turku (Finland) where you’re welcome to join. So, bring your own wine and join in the reading of this medieval play written by Hrotsvit of Gandersheim.
