Lochin Brouillard is a Chinese adopted Québécoise who has been Anglicized and who cultivates a love-hate relationship with France. She went from being the goth high school president to a PhD student in medieval studies who’s interested in monks, family, and gender. She’s a social nerd, a feminist geek, a close reader with big ideas, and a consciously kind Slytherin who tries her best to use her power for good.
Lochin and Michael talk about “world” music, cultural Catholicism, postmedieval Quebec, gender roles, and racialized identities.
