Free workshop on David Bowie's Death

You are invited by Centre for Women's Studies and Sociology to an afternoon of discussion on David Bowie, focusing on personal & media reactions to his death.

David Bowie 'Lazarus' 
Is it a ‘Diana moment’, a distraction from war, floods, January, Cameron?

Is Bowie a genius, recognised in his own time? Is he someone who,as Grayson Perry commented, “sucked up the zeitgeist and gave it to us kids to feast on”.
(11 January, Guardian).

How did his music move us, his style affect us? Which Bowie is your Bowie?

How can we approach seventies ‘baby groupies’ and assess his flirtation with fascism?

Please send ideas for 10 minute discussion-starters by 20th January to:  ann.kaloski-naylor@york.ac.uk & ruth.penfold-mounce@york.ac.uk 

Date: 3rd February, 1.30-4, VX330, 3rd floor, Grimston House (by Market Square). FREE EVENT, tea & coffee from 1.15.
