Karen probably permanently damaged her eyes reading very scary books under the covers by flashlight just to prove to herself that she could. She earned her MA in Communication Studies at McGill – reading 24 years worth of microfilm for seven different Montreal dailies in the early 20th century, to figure out how the press represented vice, crime and prostitution (OK, that didn’t help the eyesight, either). She occasionally teaches courses on gender, space, power and culture at Concordia’s Simone de Beauvoir Institute.
