Feminist geographer Leslie Kern discussed her book, Feminist City (Between the Lines and Verso) on Wednesday, April 28 on Zoom. The talk is now available for viewing here.
With the municipal election just around the corner on May 10, Kern provides us with a different way to think about the importance of gender in the city. Join us to discuss why a feminist lens is crucial to better understanding urban life.
Leslie Kern is associate professor in the departments of Geography and Environment and director of the Women’s and Gender Studies program at Mount Allison University in Sackville, NB. She is also an academic lifecoach. Her work on feminist geography has been published in the leading peer-review journals on urban studies.
Last year, Lauren Korn spoke with Leslie Kern about her ideas for a feminist Fredericton.
What is a tertulia? A tertulia can be described as a kind of philosophy café where participants talk about big thinkers, artists and ideas. This winter, Tertulias Fredericton has put together a series on activists and social movements that have shaped our lives and allowed us to imagine a better future.
The talk was co-presented by Tertulias Fredericton, NB Media Co-op, the Canada Research Chair in Global and International Studies, Between the Lines and Verso.
Tertulias Fredericton is supported by the NB Media Co-op, publisher of videos of the Tertulia talks, RAVEN – Rural Action and Voices for the Environment, the Atlantic Regional Solidarity Network, and book publishers Fernwood, Between the Lines, Verso and Canadian Scholars | Women’s Press.
