Tomorrow (August 25) we will be meeting at Arden Dimick Library at 10:30AM to discuss Strangers in Their Own Land, by Arlie Russell Hochschild. On her webpage, Hochschild suggests the following topics to consider with regard to her book:
- The Environment
She also introduces the following topics:
The Empathy Wall: an obstacle to “deep understanding”
Deep Story: “a story that feels as if it were true”
Feeling Rules: a shared set of rules regarding to how to feel about certain topics.
Honor Squeeze: “The perception by the right that their identity as white Christian men or women is not seen as honorable.”
Structural Amnesia: “A process by which the distribution of power in a society—monopolized by fathers or controlled by big business, for example—shapes what is collectively remembered or forgotten.”
See you tomorrow!
