Event description
Authors Wendy Wickwire and Meenal Shrivastava will discuss their fascinating histories and make us aware of voices not previously heard.

About this Event

Wendy Wickwire, professor emerita of History, University of Victoria, is the author of numerous award-winning books and articles. Her current book, a biography of Indigenous rights activist, James Teit - At the Bridge: James Teit and an Anthropology of Belonging has received high praise from reviewers, described as a “must-read” page-turner and one of the most important books on BC’s history to appear in years. Wickwire lives in Saanichton, B.C. with her writer/activist partner, Michael M’Gonigle.

Born in Jaipur, Meenal Shrivastava now lives in North Saanich, British Columbia where she is a writer and a professor of political economy and global studies at Athabasca University. Shrivastava regularly speaks on the erasure of women in historical narratives and the global history of feminism. Currently, aside from serving on professional boards, she is a member of the Shastri Indo-Canadian Association. In Amma’s Daughters, her first work of creative non-fiction, Shrivastava weaves together interviews, her mother and grandmother’s writings, and archival research to tell the story of her remarkable family.
