Apologies if I sound a little drunk on the sheer joy of friendship in this episode. I was. Come hang out with me and Erin Wunker — academic, activist, award-winning author, and all-around treasure of a human being — as we talk about the politics of accessibility in feminist writing and also make emoji faces at each other for five minutes. If you want to learn more about her, or other topics this episode covers, here you go:
- Read about Erin’s book Notes from a Feminist Killjoy: Essays on Everyday Life, and then order yourself a copy
- You should probably be following Hook&Eye if you have any relationship to academia whatsoever, but I particularly recommend her pieces on Reading as Resistance, on Gratitude and Feminist Work, and on Surthrival
- And for a peek at the important work CWILA does, read Erin in conversation with Vivek Shraya
- Don’t forget to read a little more on Kate Millet and her legacy!
