In March of last year, David Moscrop spoke with feminist theorist and friend Amanda Watson about managing life during the pandemic. The conversation included thoughts about compassion, care, inequity, resistance, and, of course, anxiety.
Just over a year later, as the end of the pandemic begins, the two revisit that conversation. This time the focus is on processing…all of this, with special attention given to the question: How are we managing late-pandemic anxiety and what will a return to “normal” look like?
As mentioned, on this episode of Open to Debate, David Moscrop talks with Amanda Watson, feminist theorist, lecturer at Simon Fraser University and author of The Juggling Mother: Coming Undone in the Age of Anxiety.
