Welcome to our second meeting of the ‘Reading Circle’!

Let’s finish the reading of “A Doll’s House” by Ibsen and find out if our assumptions about Nora and Torvald would change after reading the whole play. To add to our discussion, please bring your thought about the movie “Barbie”, so we can compare the narratives of injustice towards women used in scripts in XIX and XX centuries.

For the newcomers, please read first 8 pages of the script and join our reading and discussion. Ibsen was a Norwegian playwright who cared deeply about social issues; the play was written in 1879 and was used by a political thinker Philipp Pettit as an example to explain the idea of republican freedom.
We recommend you to check at least the first two pages of the script beforehand to find out if it’s suitable for your English Level.

The moderation will be done by Asya Kramer, who has a BA in English and linguistics and an MA in political theory at EUSPB. Asya fell in love with politics during Covid times and after starting her master’s she got interested in republicanism, feminist political theory, and critical sociology.
Join us at the backyard of Common Ground (6 Baghramyan, Yerevan) at 7:30 p.m. The event would approximately take 2 hours.

PRICE: one drink minimum or the equivalent for the Common Ground’s hospitality and to set our mood right!

The seats are limitied. Please register in advance.
