Discourse & Dynamics: Canadian Women as Public Intellectuals
CONFERENCE 16-18 October 2014
Mount Allison University Sackville, New Brunswick
Canadian women have contributed enormously to public discourse, in important but often under-valued ways. Across different generations and cultural communities, women in English Canada and Quebec address key questions that animate intellectual discussion, from concerns about the environment and the economy to issues of social justice, racism, poverty, health and violence. But are their voices valued and heard, or are they subsumed in the general noise of public debate? Why are they not accorded the attention and approbation they merit?
