A reading group dedicated to Thursday, August 15th’s edition of The New York Times from a feminist perspective. Participants are welcome to join regardless of whether they have read, skimmed, or even just glanced at that day's paper. The discussion begins informally with whatever news item or question participants first raise, and ranges widely from investigations of specific articles or images, to editorial choices and ad placements, to the larger questions of the business of newspapers, the migration of news into digital formats, and the future of media in general. Hosted by Jen Kennedy and Liz Linden. Questions? Email contact@contemporaryfeminism.com

Since Eyebeam's founding 16 years ago, this is the very first year that its roster of Fellows and Residents includes more women than men. The Very First Year is a series of events throughout the summer and fall of 2013 in consideration of this fact, organized by current Fellow Laurel Ptak and inspired by her ongoing research at Eyebeam into cyberfeminist art practices since the 1990s.
