The Journal of Feminist Scholarship is a new online journal. It aims ” to offer an open-access academic forum for the publication of innovative, peer-reviewed feminist scholarship across the disciplines and to encourage productive debates among scholars and activists interested in examining methodological directions and political contexts and ramifications of feminist inquiry.” The enterprising editors are Catherine Villanueva Gardner, Anna M. Klobucka, and Jeannette E. Riley at the University of Massachusetts. Here is a link to my own short piece in the inaugural issue’s round table on “Feminism and Feminist Scholarship Today.”
On Sunday 23 October, CBC’s radio program “The Sunday Edition” had a segment on Ibsen, which included an interview with a fascinating young Sudanese artist inspired by Ibsen’s Nora, and a conversation with Paula Dankert, from the National Theatre in Ottawa, and Toril Moi, and the experience of studying Ibsen on Fogo Island. A link to the audio file (available as a pop-up from the page) can be found here.
