Overview of The Literate Gadfly
Our club aims of multi-cultural communication, especially cultures of minorities including Asians, Latin American, African, and Females. The function of gadfly, in Hannah Arendt's definition, is "to arouse the citizens who will sleep undisturbed for the rest of their lives", unless they hear the voice of minorities who also participate in the constructions of our societies. We will specifically discuss literature, philosophy, visual art, music and films in different minorities cultures. This is also a chapter of Minorities and Philosophy, an international organization that aims to address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy.
