Women Without Men is playing in NYC!

Join celebrated writer Shahrnush Parsipur and artist Shirin Neshat as they reflect on their shared concern for the position of women in Iranian society and how they work with artistic means, whether literary or visual, to express their views. Parsipur was jailed after the publication of her novella, Women Without Men, in Iran in 1989 and Shirin Neshat adapted the book to film in 2009. The evening will draw out the fraught issues surrounding women and public space in the Middle East that are raised in the exhibition Shifters, on view in the James Gallery. Moderated by Katherine Carl, Curator, James Gallery.

The film will screen at 6:00 PM, followed by a conversation on these prevalent subjects. The Center for the Humanities is located at 365 Fifth Avenue, with the event taking place at the Prohansky Auditorium. For general information on the Graduate Center contact them by phone at 212-817-2005.
