Event Description

Fathers and Daughters: A Complex Mirror

A daughter makes a profound claim on a father’s integrity if he is to be worthy of the positive projections she longs for him to hold. He makes a profound claim on her entire life of which he is often completely unaware. Any discussion of fathers and daughters becomes an examination of where the patriarchy is listening and where it remains obdurate and afraid. Drs. Callahan and Avery-Clark will examine a particular case, and move back and forth between the specifics of this case and the culture in which the bond is played out by father-daughter combinations like Donald and Ivanka Trump, Barack Obama and his daughters, Nat King Cole and his daughter, Natalie, as well as others. Music, poetry, and art will be offered as other evocative images.

3 CEs Available
