An interview with Deborah Cohler, guest editor of a recent Feminist Formations special issue on Homefront Frontlines

Submitted by l_kinnamon on Mon, 05/22/2017 - 15:09


Feminist Formations: Why was the topic of "Homefront Frontlines" important to you, and how did you come to this topic?

Deborah Cohler: Homefront Frontlines captures the constant interplay between ideas of war and peace, safety and danger. The "homefront" is a deeply gendered construct, one that I have been working on for much of my career.

Did Cavewomen Come

           after Stephen Rodefer

at the start of the century
the radio recruited me
into relational self-shattering

the radio was still the radio

come with me my love
through the sea
the unimpeachable sea

is all understanding a private feeling?
is receptivity redemptive?

everything that goes to make up the air

“what its being asked makes happen”

A Feminist Formations Critical Response: Scholars and Activists Reflect on the Aftermath of the Election

Response from Dr. Brenda Weber, Professor and Chair of Gender Studies at Indiana University

Like so many – the majority – of people in this country, I have been saddened and heartsick since the election.  I’m leaning now on the support and wisdom of other leaders, who have figured out effective methods for fighting the good fight:  Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock, the Sanctuary Movement.
