Shepherd Siegel Reading - Disruptive Play


Join us for an evening with Seattle author Shepherd Siegel, PhD as he presents on his new book Disruptive Play: The Trickster in Politics and Culture. The book journeys from ancient folkloric appearances of Tricksters such as Raven and »?ý-Elegba, to their confined role in Western civilization, and then on to Tricksterís 20th century jailbreak as led by dada and the hippies. Disruptive Play bears witness to how this spirit informs social progress today, whether by Anonymous, Banksy, Bugs Bunny, or unrevealed mischief-makers and culture jammers. Such play is revolutionary and lights the path to a transformed society.
