Media Advisory - Annual John Meisel Lecture at Queen's University focuses on gendered forms of anger

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

KINGSTON – The John Meisel Lecture Series celebrates Professor Emeritus John Meisel by providing a forum for addressing political issues facing scholars, policy-makers, and the public. Each year, the Department of Political Studies invites a mid-career scholar to Queen’s University to deliver a public lecture that addresses a timely political subject, followed by an interactive townhall discussion that is open to both the Queen’s and Kingston community.

This year, Alana Cattapan (Assistant Professor at the University of Waterloo) will deliver a lecture titled Excluded and Enraged: On Gender, Anger, and Violence.


In this lecture, nearly 30 years after the Montreal Massacre, Dr. Alana Cattapan examines how gendered forms of anger can inform our understanding of historic and contemporary acts of violence against women, and what it means for anger as a tool for social justice.

Dr. Alana Cattapan is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Waterloo. A longtime feminist researcher and activist, she studies gendered inclusion in policy-making. She is also a Board Member of the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women, and part of the organizing group of Rise Up! A Digital Archive of Feminist Activism.

Thursday, November 21 at 4 pm in Grant Hall. For more information visit the website.
