Penetrate: Translate
Reading Group: Virgin with a Memory by Sophia Al-Maria

Mon 14 October 2019

Join us to read around female body politics in translation.

Virgin with a Memory is a novelisation of Sophia Al-Maria's un-made rape-revenge thriller Beretta, composed of script fragments and other behind-the-scenes materials illustrating the author's frustration at the limitations of the female vigilante genre.

Penetrate: Translate is a fortnightly reading group which reflects the violent slippage(s) that occurs between a text’s subject, its author, its reader(s), language(s) and form itself. The group is led by Catalina Barroso-Luque, a Mexican artist based in Glasgow. Books may be available at discount through MAP. Please contact info@mapmagazine.co.uk for further information.
