A Workshop on Gossip

One of the most common, exciting, important, and controversial styles of communication is gossip. Gossip fuels reality tv programs and tabloids. It can be used as a protective web to prevent harm from reoccurring. Or it can be used to bully, intimidate, and maintain positions of power.

In this workshop we will explore our relationship to gossip and rumors. What effect does gossip have on our communities? What is “productive” gossip and what is “harmful” gossip? And how does gossip affect the way that we interact with those around us? 

Part of Gender*Language’s second Release ‘The Word’.
