Endoxa Booking and Lil Indies are hosting a night of philosophical discussion and drinking. The discussion for March 28th will feature Kirsten Holt discussing the concept of feminist horror in a contemporary cinematic age. Discussion will start with defining what feminist horror is, with a brief background of examples, and will move to problems that arise in classic and contemporary horror as it relates gender and sexuality. The goal of the discussion is to ask what the responsibilities of horror can and should be in an intersectional society, without losing the raw power and fear into which horror taps.

This event is intended to foster discussion and drinking in a fun atmosphere. There will be a brief (15 - 20 minutes) presentation of the issue followed by general discussion and argument. All are strongly encouraged to participate in the discussion (that’s the whole point!).

Does the advancement of the internet, and technology in general, signal greater access and use of knowledge for a wide range of people? While some have claimed the internet functions as a kind of ‘democratization of knowledge’, others have argued such wide-ranging access has fostered little progress in creating a more informed populous. Does this mean that technological advancements have, in fact, done little to bolster educational and epistemic practices? Should we see the rapid pace of technological advancement as beneficial to society?
