Nora Samaran @ WestM (Corvallis, OR)
December 12, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
CW: Discussion will cover topics of rape culture, white supremacy, violence, and gaslighting. We will have a trained advocate from CARDV (Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence) available at this event for folks in need.
Join us for a conversation with Nora Samaran as she discusses her book, Turn This World Inside Out: The Emergence of Nurturance Culture, in dialogue with Alex Riccio.
As Nora Samaran writes, “violence is nurturance turned backwards.” In its place, she proposes “nurturance culture” as the opposite of rape culture, suggesting that models of care and accountability—different from “call-outs” rooted in the politics of guilt—can move toward dismantling systems of dominance and oppression.
When communities identify and interrupt systemic violence, prioritize the needs of those harmed, and hold a circle of belonging that humanizes everyone, they create a foundation that can begin to resist and repair the harms inflicted by patriarchy, white supremacy, and capitalism. Emerging from insights in gender studies, race theory, and psychology, and influenced by contemporary social movements, Turn This World Inside Out engages today’s crucial questions, helping move us beyond seemingly intractable barriers to collective change.
