017: Lisa Knisely gives you everyday feminist theory for the home

Lisa Knisely saw all the problems in our field before anyone else saw them. An instructor of Food, Social Identity and Justice at the Portland Underground Graduate School, Lisa wrote a poignant article in 2013 about how male dominated barista competitions are for Bitch Magazine, and she's here to talk to us about care labor, the masculinization of expertise, and how our social identity influences our understanding of gender and race in the cafe.
