Demystifying the self

During this workshop that I have created we engage with Existential thought and Hitchcock’s movie Rear Window to talk about ‘the gaze’, ‘the other’ and ‘mythification’. Through writing exercises that I have developed, and a reading of the writings of Anna J. Cooper and Simone de Beauvoir, we discuss the importance of the subjective approach in countering the myth created through the gaze.

I first did this workshop for Read My World’s the Diary as Feminist Genre series
