Together with UBC Bookstore, Caitlin Press, and the UBC Creative Writing Alumni Association, the UBC Creative Writing Program is hosting a reading and book signing of the anthology Boobs: Women Explore What It Means to Have Breasts edited by Ruth Daniell.

“The stories represent the diverse experiences that surround breasts: the coming of age stories, the struggles with gender, the trauma, the self-love, the experience of motherhood, the early sexualisation, the struggles of not feeling like enough or feeling like too much–too much of a woman, not enough of a woman, too much cleavage, too little. […] But no matter what your personal experiences with them, Boobs will engage you and make you feel things–in the breast possible way.” –Ljudmila Petrovic, Sad Mag

At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Boobs is a diverse collection of stories about the burdens, expectations and pleasures of having breasts. From the agony of puberty and angst of adolescence to the anxiety of aging, these stories and poems go beyond the usual images of breasts found in fashion magazines and movie posters, instead offering dynamic and honest portraits of desire, acceptance and the desire for acceptance.

About the Program

The Mozilla Fellowships for Science present a unique opportunity for researchers who want to influence the future of open science and data sharing within their communities.

We’re looking for researchers with a passion for open source and data sharing, already working to shift research practice to be more collaborative, iterative and open. Fellows will spend 10 months starting September 2016 as community catalysts at their institutions, mentoring the next generation of open data practitioners and researchers and building lasting change in the global open science community.

Throughout their fellowship year, chosen fellows will receive training and support from Mozilla to hone their skills around open source, data sharing, open science policy and licensing. They will also craft code, curriculum and other learning resources that help their local communities learn open data practices, and teach forward to their peers.
