Behind the Face, A Fierce Woman - Live in Studio
Join Charlene Sayo every week for lively discussions with whip smart, trailblazing women in the arts, sciences, literature, politics, music, feminism, social transformation movements, academia and more. In line with MsRepresent’s mandate to uncover women’s history, understand women’s culture, and create theory, this website–an ongoing and ever-evolving project–will soon be publishing essays in reflection and celebration of these themes.

Sayo joins us to talk MsRepresent's mission and most surprising guests, feminism and podcasting, and some more serious talk around how the airwaves can contribute to safety through visibility and confrontation, with reference specifically to the media narratives of the Pulse Shooting in Orlando and the unaddressed assaults at SFU and UBC campuses.

For Your Own Good

[2016-06-08]
a conversation with Leah Horlick
Leah Horlick is a poet, with an explosive 2015 release For Your Own Good. In 2016, "For Your Own Good" was named a Stonewall Honour Title in Literature by the GLBT Round Table of the American Library Association. The Vancouver poet has won the 10th annual Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBT Emerging Writers.

She is also the co-founder of the REVERB: A Queer Reading Series, and in 2015 became the coordinator at the SFU Women's Centre this same year. Horlick's For Your Own Good was written as an expression of the female on female abuse she was subject to, and to address the lack of literature about violence between women, especially in queer communities. Maegan Thomas talks with Horlick live on air May 13, 2015 about her work, the identities she carries and what this book meant to her experience as a queer woman of colour. We talk of traumatic challenges, and end with a poem featuring kittens.

Realists and Idealists: Women of the Easter Rising, 1916

[2016-06-01]
from Dr. Mary McAuliffe (Women's Studies, University College Dublin).
IntraVenus' Laura Scheck is happy to present their recording of this April 2016 Gender Studies event Realists and Idealists: Women of the Easter Rising, 1916

In 2016, Irish populations around the globe will commemorate the Easter Rising of 1916, a rebellion against Britain that was ill-fated in the immediate event but has been indelibly etched in the collective memory of Irish nationalists. Most of these centenary events will be male-centered, celebrating the efforts of “the lads” in the General Post Office, Boland’s Mill, and other rebel outposts in Dublin, Enniscorthy, and Galway. To introduce gender balance to the commemorations, we have invited Dr. Mary McAuliffe (University College, Dublin) to speak to us about the many women who were a vital force in the rising: the front-line soldiers, such as the 77 women who were captured, detained, and sentenced in the Richmond Barracks, and hundreds more who contributed on the ground.

The events are being sponsored by SFU (FASS Speaker’s Fund, History, Sociology and Anthropology, and Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies) as well as the Embassy or Ireland (Ottawa), the Irish Women’s Network, and Café Minerva.

Dr Vandana Shiva - "Ecofeminist Visionary"

[2016-05-25]
from Scripps College Humanities Institute's Fall 2003 program "Poverty"
The Ecofeminist Visionary: Dr Vandana Shiva, world renowned activist and educator around commodification, especially of nature and cultural resources, will be in Vancouver for the Indian Summer Festival 2016! http://indiansummerfest.ca/project/dr-vandana-shiva/

To familiarize you with her incredible work, from the CJSF archives, here is Dr. Shiva's lecture recorded as part of the Scripps College Humanities Institute's Fall 2003 program "Poverty." The Program in Science, Technology, and Society of the Claremont Colleges was also a co-sponsor of this event. Thank you to LA Sound Posse for the recording. http://www.scrippscollege.edu/news/releases/ecologist-vandana-shiva-contends-economic-globalization-robs-the-poor

from IndianSummerFest.ca:


Dr. Vandana Shiva trained as a Physicist at the University of Punjab, and completed her Ph.D. on the ‘Hidden Variables and Non-locality in Quantum Theory’ from the University of Western Ontario, Canada. She later shifted to inter-disciplinary research in science, technology and environmental policy.

In 1991 she founded Navdanya, a national movement to protect the diversity and integrity of living resources – especially native seed – and to promote organic farming and fair trade. For last two decades, Navdanya has worked with local communities and organisations, serving more than 500,000 men and women farmers. Navdanya’s efforts have resulted in the conservation of more than 3000 rice varieties from across India, and the organisation has established 60 seed banks in 16 states across the country. In 2004, Dr. Shiva started Bija Vidyapeeth, an international college for sustainable living in Doon Valley in collaboration with Schumacher College, U.K.

Dr. Shiva has contributed in fundamental ways to changing the practice and paradigms of agriculture and food. Her books The Violence of the Green Revolution and Monocultures of the Mind pose essential challenges to the dominant paradigm of non-sustainable, industrial agriculture. Through her books Biopiracy, Stolen Harvest and Water Wars, Dr. Shiva has made visible the social, economic and ecological costs of corporate-led globalisation. Dr. Shiva chairs the Commission on the Future of Food set up by the Region of Tuscany in Italy, she is a Board member of the International Forum on Globalisation (IGF), and a member of the Steering Committee of the Indian People’s Campaign Against the WTO. Time Magazine has hailed her as an environmental hero and Asia Week called her one of the five most powerful communicators in Asia and Forbes Magazine identified Dr. Shiva as one of the Seven Most Powerful Women on the Globe.

Internationally, Dr. Shiva serves on Prince Charles’s expert group on Sustainable Agriculture and she is a member of President Zapatero’s Scientific Committee in Spain. Dr. Shiva advises governments worldwide, and is currently working with the Government of Bhutan to make Bhutan 100% organic. She is also working with the Governments of Tuscany and Rome to create a hopeful and livable future for young people in these times of crises
