Candis Steenbergen, Concordia University

I am currently a Ph.D candidate in the Humanities Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program at Concordia University, an instructor for a self-made course called "feminist generations" at the Simone de Beauvoir Institute, and a member of the volunteer editorial board of good girl magazine (www.goodgirl.ca). My work revolves around that messy spot that sometimes links and sometimes separates theory and practice - particularly with regard to feminism in the contemporary Canadian context.
