A Conversation between Canadian Women of Color

Degrees of Difference

Jenny Heijun Wills

Délice Mugabo

University of Illinois Press

This chapter features a dialogue between Delice Mugabo, a PhD Candidate in Geography at SUNY and Jenny Heijun Wills, an associate professor of English at University of Winnipeg. In their conversation, Mugabo and Wills reflect on how women of color in graduate school are observed and surveilled by white women scholars in ways that encourage interracial and interdisciplinary kinship formation. Drawing on their experiences living and working as intersectional feminist scholars in Canada, Mugabo and Wills gesture to their respective communities and subjectivities—Mugabo, a Black feminist who studied in Quebec; Wills, an Asian adoptee who works in Manitoba—to make sense of the lack of institutionalized Race Studies in Canada, despite a history of student protests.
