Join us for our second lunch event discussing feminist geography with Julie Podmore (GPE Concordia Faculty member & Chair ) & Damaris Rose (Centre Urbanisation Culture Société at INRS). Everyone is welcome to share in the discussion over a complimentary light lunch.
JULIE PODMORE is a socio-cultural urban geographer with an interest in feminist, queer and historical materialist theory. While she made an early contribution to the gentrification literature, her sustained focus has been on the complex intersections between gender and sexuality in urban space, a perspective that is reflected in her publications on Montréal lesbian spaces. Her newest research interest is on the urban geographies of queer youth.
DAMARIS ROSE is an urban and social geographer. Her main research interests focus on social transformations in inner city neighbourhoods, and on the settlement and social integration of international immigrants. Social and urban geography, dynamics of socio-cultural diversity, social and urban policy, housing, services for female immigrants and single-parent families.
Whether you want get to know the GPE community a little better, to hear about the experiences of women in geography, to make connections in the field or would just like to try some free finger sandwiches, we would love to see you there!
