Vol 37, No 1 (2015): Intimacies/Affect and Transgressing Borders/Boundaries: Gendering Space and Place

PEI North Shore Sunset, Acrylic on Canvas, 2013

The cover image is painted by William Montelpare, the inaugural Margaret and Wallace McCain Chair in Human Development and Health at the University of Prince Edward Island.

His current areas of research include: the epidemiology of physical activity-related injuries, return to play criteria, and research on human development from pre-conception through gestation to the first 2,000 days.

His paintings take inspiration from local landscapes and, most recently, the gentle vistas of Prince Edward Island.

Vol 36, No 2 (2014): In/Visibility: Absences/Presence in Feminist Theorizing

Timeless Bonds, Acrylic on Canvas, 1993

Paige Kennedy was a visual artist based in rural Pictou County, Nova Scotia who passed away on August 6th, 2014 due to a terminal illness. During her long artistic career, Paige showed and sold her work in many venues in Halifax and beyond, including the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Eye Level Gallery, Mount Saint Vincent University, and the Fraser Cultural Center.

At a young age, Paige discovered art as both an ability and a refuge. As her world view shifted away from the military values of her upbringing toward one of social and ecological justice—where the needs of all life are met—art became a way to express this evolving vision. Paige’s artwork celebrates women’s experiences and the female body in its age imperfections.

 Cover Image by Olivia Ashbee

 “This photograph was taken on a beautiful October day at Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary in Victoria, BC.  A silhouette uses light and shadow to represent space and matter in the language of shape. When I took this photo, I was struck by the beautiful simplicity of the branch and leaf against a blue sky, by the palpable presence of loss and absence – its imperfect geometry – and by the composite resilience of living with and without.”

 Olivia Ashbee lives, works, struggles, plays, and chases butterflies in and around Victoria BC, Coast Salish territories.  S/he enjoys photography as a means to remember, honour and communicate lessons learned through an ongoing commitment to ally with the non-human living world.

Cover Image: “Love Locks in Paris”

by Dr. Áine M. Humble

“While vacationing in Paris in June 2011, I was intrigued by a custom called ‘Love Locks,’ in which sweethearts affix a lock to a bridge as a sign of their everlasting love for their partner. Many of them write their names on the lock, and the key is either taken with them or thrown into the river, never to be retrieved again. As a feminist family studies scholar researching and teaching about relationship and family diversity, I searched the locks to find evidence of same-sex couples and easily found this lock celebrating Christine's love for her partner.”

Cover Image: "No Place For a Garden." Photo by Lisa M. Champagne, 2005. Photographer's Note: There is no place for a garden, so this is their flower garden. I think they are inside and this is how they feel…I look fine on the inside because there is no light coming through. I need light ot grow inside and outside but I cannot afford a place with windows.
The Empty Shopping Cart; Butterfly Russell*, 2006.

Vol 30, No 3 (2006): Open Topic Issue/Violence Against Women (Online only)

Cover Image: The Empty Shopping Cart; Butterfly Russell*, 2006.

Explanation of Artwork: To me the empty shopping cart is symbolic. A shopping cart should be full of groceries and have a little kid bouncing up and down in the seat. But for many, every time they look at a grocery cart they feel guilty because they don't have enough money to fill it up with groceries. And the other thing I think when I look at a grocery cart is, "Thank God I'm not the one who's got all my worldly possessions in it." Or I could be wandering up and down back alleys picking up pop bottles. So the shopping cart has a lot of meanings.

Sucbitoto, El Salvador, May 7th 1986

Drive back from Suchitoto, avoiding the spent mortar cases that litter the road. At a blown bridge stop for a road check and ask to take photos - as it's 'Day of the Soldier' (as opposed to day of the Secretary -Salvadoreans honour certain occupations with special days), the young lads strutting their stuff all seem to be in a good mood and unusually amenable. ©JennyMatthews
