Ep. 24: Feminist City with Leslie Kern

Paul talks with Dr. Leslie Kern about Feminist City: A Field Guide. Feminist City: A Field Guide combines memoir, feminist theory, pop culture, and geography to expose what is hidden in plain sight: the social inequalities built right into our cities, homes, and neighbourhoods. Focusing on gendered experiences of the city, the books grapples with the challenge of claiming urban space amongst barriers designed to keep women “in their place.” From the geography of rape culture to the politics of snow removal, the city is an ongoing site of gendered struggle. Yet the city is perhaps also our best hope for shaping new social relations based around care and justice. Taking on fear, motherhood, friendship, activism, and the joys and perils of being alone, Kern maps the city from new vantage points, laying out a feminist intersectional approach to urban histories and pathways towards different urban futures. Feminist questions about safety and fear, paid and unpaid work, and rights and representation prompt us to dismantle what we take for granted about cities and open space to ask how we can build more just, sustainable, and care-full cities together. Bookings is recorded and produced by Paul MacKay for the King’s Co-op Bookstore in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Ep. 18: The Innocents with Michael Crummey and John DeMont

Coming to you again from the Halifax Central Library, bestselling and award-winning author Michael Crummey sits down with Chronicle Herald columnist and author John DeMont to discuss his new book: The Innocents. Longlisted for the 2019 Scotiabank Giller Prize, The Innocents is described as a sweeping, heart-wrenching, deeply immersive novel about a brother and sister alone in a small world. A brother and sister are orphaned in an isolated cove on Newfoundland's northern coastline. Their home is a stretch of rocky shore governed by the feral ocean, by a relentless pendulum of abundance and murderous scarcity. Still children with only the barest notion of the outside world, they have nothing but the family's boat and the little knowledge passed on haphazardly by their mother and father to keep them. As they fight for their own survival through years of meager catches and storms and ravaging illness, it is their fierce loyalty to each other that motivates and sustains them. But as seas...

Ep. 16: Thinking Through Fear with Elisabeth de Mariaffi and Desmond Cole

The Humanities for Young People (HYP) is a residential summer program for bright and highly-motivated students from ages 15 to 17. Secondary school students from across the country have the unique opportunity to work closely and collaboratively with scholars from a variety of disciplines. HYP is co-ordinated by Dr. Laura Penny and Dr. Sarah Clift from the University of King's College and they generously allowed us to record this year's keynote speeches. The theme for HYP 2019 is Thinking Through Fear and at the annual public symposium both keynote speakers had an opportunity to speak about the social and political dimensions of fear.
