    • Jennifer Nash presents “In the Room”: Women of Color Doulas in a State of Emergency

      Main Library, Lecture Hall, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      ​​​​​​"In the Room” explores the work of women of color doulas laboring in Chicago in an era where doulas are increasingly hailed—by the state and by activists—as precisely the innovation that can save black mothers’ lives. Professor Nash's analysis draws on twenty-three interviews she conducted in 2018 with birth doulas—many of whom describe themselves as “bodyguards”-- working in the Chicago metropolitan area. She explores the complicated tensions around professionalization and the medicalization of birth that underpins their practice, and considers the place of their work in the ongoing effort to eradicate black infant and maternal mortality. Jennifer C. Nash is an associate professor of African American studies and gender and sexuality studies at Northwestern University and a ACLS Frederick Burkhardt Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute at Harvard. Nash’s work centers on black feminist theory, black sexual politics, race and visual culture, and theories of intersectionality. Nash is the author of The Black Body in Ecstasy (Duke University Press, 2014) and Black Feminism Reimagined (Duke University Press, 2019). Her work has appeared in American Quarterly, Feminist Review, Feminist Studies, Feminist Theory, GLQ, Signs, and Social Text. She earned her PhD in African American studies from Harvard University, her JD from Harvard Law School, and her AB in women’s studies from Harvard College. This event is co-sponsored by the Cambridge Women's Commission and presented as part of our Women's History Month programming. .

    • Great Books

      Main Library, Curious George Room, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      March 3rd Read: Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston Reading Interests: We read primarily from anthologies that emphasize ancient and modern classics of literature, drama, philosophy, and social thought. In recent years the group has read selections from The Book of Job, Aeschylus, Plato, Montaigne, Donne, William James, Cady Stanton, Baldwin, and Borges. These may run anywhere from 20 to 100 pages. Additional books, chosen by the group, tend to be more contemporary. Those read in the last three years include Adiga's Between the Assassinations, Welty's The Golden Apples, Camus's The Plague, Woolf’s To the Lighthouse, DuBois's The Souls of Black Folk, and Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude. A Shakespeare play is read every year. Requirements: There are only two: read the scheduled work and participate in the discussion. These requirements are waived for those attending their first meeting. Preregistration is not required but is encouraged, since the library will provide, in advance and at no charge, a copy of the reading for anyone planning to attend. For more information, contact Drew Griffin (857-235-9829; dgriffin@cambridgema.gov)
