Matt Sheedy
Issued Date: 8 Mar 2013


An interview with Darlene Juschka (cross-appointed Professor of Women's and Gender Studies and Religious Studies at the University of Regina), focusing on her 2009 book Political Bodies/Body Politics: The Semiotics of Gender (Equinox Publishing). The conversation ranged from a look at some of the key influences upon her theoretical development to her work on the construction of gender/sex in the Eurowest and its deployment through myth, ritual and sign-symbol, along with applications of this theory to religious studies and her more recent work on the concept of pain.
