Karen Diepeveen and I had the pleasure of interviewing Jennifer V. Evans, an associate professor of history at Carleton University, for the Big Thinking podcast. In the interest of transparency, I admit that I took her Social History of Sexuality class in 3rd year and loved it!

Evans’ research focuses on 20th century Germany and issues of sexuality. Her new book, Life Among the Ruins: Cityscape and Sexuality in Cold War Berlin examines the re-emergence of the city’s subcultures in the post-World War II period.

Tune in to hear us talk sexuality, systems of power, forms of resistance and Valentine’s Day.
