Description

On the eve of International Women’s Day, we present award-winning novelist Julienne van Loon to discuss her extraordinary new book, The Thinking Woman. In her work, Julienne discusses ‘love’ with author and cultural critic, Laura Kipnis; ‘play’ with award-winning novelist and essayist, Siri Hustvedt; ‘work’ with author and socialist feminist activist, Nancy Holmstrom; ‘fear’ with philosopher, literary critic and author, Julia Kristeva; ‘wonder’ with feminist cultural historian Marina Warner; and ‘friendship’ with pre-eminent feminist philosopher, Rosi Braidotti.

Julienne van Loon holds a Vice Chancellor’s Senior Research Fellowship with the writing and publishing program at RMIT University. Julienne’s honours include the Australian/Vogel’s Award and an appointment as Honorary Fellow in Writing with the University of Iowa. The Thinking Woman is her first nonfiction book.
