I have a piece published in the Spring/Summer 2010 Volume of Canadian Women Studies Journal: Women and Cancer; Volume 28, Numbers 2,3. Apart from my poetry chapbook, (in) valid, this marks my first publication in an anthology in Canada. Yeehaa!
The Canadian Women Studies Journal: takes a critical look at women and cancer with scholarly and creative contributions on: Challenging Existing Paradigms; Intersectionalities and the Biopolitics of Cancer Care; Cultural Politics of Cancer; Witnessing: Personal Narratives of Illness, Agency and Care; Poetry; Book Reviews.
My piece Cancer Comedy: Would You Like Hormones With That? is in the Witnessing: Personal Narratives of Illness, Agency and Care section. I ponder amongst other things the relative media hype of illnesses like cancer as opposed to other less 'glamorous' disabilities we might have.
With contributions from over 50 women the whole anthology looks like quite the interesting read.
