Building on the earlier success of the MicroTalk series that was launched in 2013, CUPFA (Concordia University Part-time Faculty Association) is proud to announce the return of this popular, dynamic event with "Feminism Matters", a MicroTalk that will address the subject of feminism.

Still edgy, feminism casts a wide net to encompass diverse viewpoints on a plethora of issues - wage inequality, division of domestic labour, violence against women, sexual identity rights, poverty, reproductive rights, embodied experience, the glass ceiling and other status concerns. In this MicroTalk, Concordia faculty and students explore some of the continued challenges of feminism today and why feminism matters.

For this MicroTalk the speakers will include part-time faculty, full-time faculty and students. They will each give short presentations of six minutes. Here is the list of speakers and their departments:

Alex Antonopoulos (Simone de Beauvoir)
Beatriz Bartolomé (Film and Moving Image Studies)
Emilee Gilpin (Journalism)
Colleen Gray (History)
Linda Kay (Journalism)
Valerie Lamontagne (Design and Computation Arts)
pk langshaw (Design and Computation Arts)

Admission is free and open to all. Refreshments will be served.
