      Real Women Have Curves - Film and Discussion

      Bridge the Divide invites you to  “Come Meet the Family”! In the North Shore we tend to lack relationships with families different from us racially, ethnically, religiously, and economically. These wonderful movies provide a window into the lives of families of other cultures - as they themselves experience them. After each film, participants are invited to talk with and ask questions of a talkback respondent from the culture represented in the story. Moderators: Erica Turner (Bridge the Divide) and Dr. Fran Kaplan (Nurturing Diversity Partners) About the Film: Ana, a 1st generation Mexican-American teenager, lives in predominantly Latino East LA. Just graduated from high school, she receives a full scholarship to Columbia U. But now that she’s a young woman, her parents need her to help provide for the family. How can Ana care for both herself and her family? Talkback: Dr. Stephanie Rivera Berruz is an assistant professor at Marquette University. She received her Ph.D. in Philosophy from SUNY Buffalo in 2014. She is the recipient of the Woodrow Wilson Career Enhancement Fellowship (2017-2018) for her work on Latinx feminisms and Latin American Philosophy. Her main research interests lie in Latin American Philosophy and Latina feminism as well philosophy of race, gender, and sexuality. She approaches these topics at their intersections as she is committed to the importance of diverse approaches to philosophical praxis. She recently published a co-edited anthology: Comparative Studies in Asian and Latin American Philosophies (2018), and her work has been published in Hypatia, Inter-American Journal of Philosophy, and Essays on Philosophy.
