The Feminist Killjoy Handbook with Sara Ahmed
Sara Ahmed, author, scholar, and one of our feminist heroes joins us to talk about her new book, The Feminist Killjoy Handbook!Sara's work both as a scholar in the academy working on queer phenomenology, on post coloniality, and on emotions, as well as her work after she left the academy has been an inspiration. Her work, Living a Feminist Life, her work on Complaint, and her bold and powerful blog, Feminist Killjoys, taught me so much about how institutions functioned and helped me understand my experiences in the academy.In this conversation, Sara and I talk about the book, but also talk about the aunties in her life and many other things. Join us in the Academic Aunties Bookclub!In December, we're going to gather some feminist killjoy aunties to talk about the book! So after listening to this episode, go out and buy a copy.
