Connexions Calendar

Launch: Fear, Love, and Liberation - Montreal book launch


April 17, 2019


In response to rapid and unsettling social, economic, and climate changes, fear-mongering now features as a main component of public life. Right-wing nationalist populism has become a hallmark of politics around the world. No less so in Quebec.

Alexa Conradi has made it her life's work to understand and to generate thoughtful debate about this worrisome trend. As the first President of Quebec solidaire and the president of Canada's largest feminist organisation, the Federation des femmes du Quebec, Conradi refused to shy away from difficult issues: the Charter of Quebec Values, religion and Islam, sovereignty, rape culture and violence against women, extractive industries and the treatment of Indigenous women, austerity policy and the growing gap between rich and poor. This determination to address uncomfortable subjects has made Conradi - an anglo-Montreale- a sometimes controversial leader.

Venue: Concordia University
Location: 1450 Guy, facing Metro Guy-Concordia, corner de Maisonneuve W. - Room MB-04.206 on the 4th floor Montreal, QC
