Thursday Workshop Roar For Matriarchy

Thursday, February 15, 2018 - 18:30

This year, RAG has tapped into a huge and growing interest in matriarchal societies. Did matriarchy ever exist? More importantly, can our beautiful planet be rescued from patriarchy and restored to some kind of gender-egalitarian rule? Tonight's meeting will be given over to planning for an International Women's Day event. Beyond that, we will be thinking of Donald Trump's scheduled visit in October, organizing to give him the Matriarchal welcome he deserves... Steve Bannon has issued a dire warning to US President Donald Trump: "The anti-patriarchy movement is going to dramatically alter the power structure across the world. I think it's going to unfold like the tea party, only bigger," the former White House chief strategist told Bloomberg News. "It's not Me Too. It's not just sexual harassment. It's an anti-patriarchy movement." He added: "Time's up on 10,000 years of recorded history. This is coming. Women are gonna take over. This is real." OK sisters, let's bring it on.

All people are interpreters. None of them can be perceived as a neutral catalyst. Such expectations are incompatible with current understandings of how language works. Listening skills have spatial qualities. Appreciating the whole range of the communicative continuum is „the new normal“ (Lewis). Listening to the lands of interlingual and intra-lingual complexity is just a part of healing justice. Let's unlearn the self-evident. Culturally sensitive interpreting cannot be Slavo-centric, Anglo-centric, Euro-centric or centered on any other language axis. In a multilingual environment it is crucial to form an institutional space for the acknowledgement of diversity of meanings. Interpreting and interpretation is an inseparable part of the process in which people, paraphrasing John L. Austin and John Searle “do things with questions”.
