This group is for women who enjoy reading, discussing good books, drinking wine, and having delicious fare! We like to hold monthly meeting to discuss books, have dinner parties, and try new wines. I am also open to doing other types of meetups in addition to our book discussions. Feel free to share your ideas with me!
my name is Sabrina; I am a member of this little book club and in Chicago during the summer months to carry out research as part of my PhD in Germany. As a research assistant in the field of Intercultural Communication, I am interested in the way Chicagoans experience and perceive Islam in their city. In order to learn more about urban encounters and local points of view, I am doing group discussions with residents of Chicagoland, where one of the biggest Muslim communities is located. Since I am looking for groups that meet kind of regularly and enjoy conversations, I would be very happy if some of you would be interested in participating! It would be an open conversations around a few questions and impulses that I would provide; the discussion would start with a little film clip. Basically, there is no need for a sound expertise on Islam on your site – but if you have, that would be interesting, too. I imagine this to be a very insightful and lively conversation, so please take part!
As soon as I know if some of you are interested, I will suggest a suitable time to meet (for example on a weekend afternoon or weekday evening). The discussion would last about 1.5 – 2 hours depending a little bit on your “fire for the subject”. I will find us a suitable quite room somewhere central; ideally where we can get some coffee & tea (otherwise I will provide it). Of course, the discussion will remain completely anonymous and would be used only for my PhD.
If you have any questions, please let me know (my numer:[masked]; email: [masked]).
