Tod Sloan talks with Lara Messersmith-Glavin of the Institute for Anarchist Studies about theory and practice. They consider how theory helps illuminate individually lived experiences as part of larger systems, while also stressing the priority of lived experience in generating our theories. She provides examples of how theory has helped make her everyday life as a working-class mother make more sense, bringing her a degree of control and context, and over all increasing her resilience as a person. She also describes how the experience of queer women of color informed several "correctives" to some of the one-demensional concerns of white feminists.
