Celebrating the "Feminist-as-Lesbian": Jeri Dawn Wine
When Jeri Wine was chair of the Department of Applied Psychology at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education in the 1980s, the name-plate on her office door stated unequivocally, Jeri Wine, Chairwoman. This was at a time when many feminists,...
Community Matters: Jeri Wine, Feminist Teacher and Mentor
There was nothing really remarkable about the morning. It was like any other, arriving at work; where the rhythm of the morning is so predictable, that my movements are automatic. In sequence, I turn the lights on, check the email, return phone...
Containing Death
February 6, 2005. The memorial celebration for Jeri Wine is being held in Room 2-214 of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), the building where we once worked together. I find a seat in the large, bleak room and survey the scene....
Critiquing the "Psychiatric Paradigm" Revisited: Reflections on Feminist Interventions in Mental Health
I still remember my first meeting with Jeri Wine. It was the fall of 1986 and I was visiting Toronto from the west coast. The notion of going to graduate school had just begun to take form in my mind and I was in Toronto to investigate what was reputed...

Jeri Wine and the Feminist Party of Canada

Jeri Wine: Out and Proud
I had been a teacher in Northern Ontario for over a decade, living with my partner of many years, out to friends we knew were lesbians, and to nobody else. The very idea of being out was terrifying and the thought of "my secret" becoming known, and...
Lesbian Academics in Canada

Revisiting and Reflecting on a Piece Written for Jeri Wine in 1984: "Feminist Issues as They Relate to My Grandmother, My Mother, and Myself"
