This morning I woke to the smell of the leaves turning. Do you know that smell? The tip of my nose felt the tiniest kiss of frost, and as I breathed in deep I could feel the turning of the leaves in the back of my throat like a taste. It’s like the leaves are musky and rotting so fast it smells like burning coals.
These arrived on my doorstep as well.
This book is a collection of my ethnographic work from 2013-2016, the research that earned me a PhD. This monograph is much more interesting than my dissertation was though! This book is a marriage of international political history and feminist theology, so if that sounds interesting to you, I encourage you to check out the book! It is available at Chapters/Indigo bookstores, and you can order it on Amazon here. I will also be holding book signing events in Ottawa, Toronto, and Pembroke where a limited number of copies will be available.
For a sample of what this book is about, I have made Chapter Three available for free download at Academia.edu here. This book is intended to be enjoyed by radically creative, courageous, and clever artistic-types. Through interviews and stories, I trace the rise of neo-fascism in our times and ultimately suggest fighting back with playful, artful, theatrical, and mystical responses.
In playful solidarity,
