About the Speaker:  Beverley Mullings, Queen’s University Beverley Mullings is a professor in the Department of Geography and Planning at Queen’s. Her research is located within the field of feminist political economy and engages questions of labour, social transformation, neoliberalism, and the politics of gender, race and class in the Caribbean and its diaspora. She is interested in the long-term effects of neoliberalization in the Caribbean on Continue Reading
