Check out this weeks’ events at the Nook, our hub for the more intimate, informal, and deeply weird conversations. These events are open to all: no registration required, unless it says otherwise. Let’s see if we can figure out this batshit crazy world together!

Did someone try to invade Moscow again? Did the government resign? Drop by during your lunch break and discuss the news that you can’t not talk about on Monday, September 18th.
Why work a bullshit job? How do you rationalize suffering? Can you un-brainwash someone? What is the end goal of evolution? Is Schrodinger’s Cat a zombie? Get philosophical over lunch on Tuesday, September 19th. Existential Tuesdays are a low key moment to ask the ultimate questions together, without necessarily finding answers or solutions. For this week’s session we’ll explore the question:
What if women had more power than men?
What are the fundamental roles that men and women play in our society, how are those roles shifting, and what does that mean for our culture, technology, the environment, political processes, and so on?
VOX Book club on Thursdays (registration required)
Read The Power, a feminist speculative sci-fi novel by Naomi Alderman. Thursday, September 21st. More info here.
Check out SG’s related events this quarter on the theme: The Female Perspective
This fall at SG, we’re going to find out what the world would look like if women had the power. We’re going to erase the dominant patriarchal perspective and substitute it with an alternate reality. What would it look like if the tables were turned: would women set the standards, could men be vulnerable? Would we let go of the old ways and celebrate gender fluidity?
This theme is part of the series For Love of the World, in which we explore alternative stories and forgotten knowledge that can (re)connect us to our world.
