Whether you have read the book or watch the series on Hulu, we invite you to follow up on Margaret Atwood’s campus visit by coming to a panel discussion with three professors from Feinberg’s Medical Humanities and Bioethics MA faculty as they contextualize The Handmaid’s Tale historically (Sarah Rodriguez), within current and proposed laws regarding women and reproduction (Katie Watson), and within dystopia fiction (Catherine Belling).
