Bill Resnick talks with Ursula McTaggart, teacher of English at Wilmington College in Wilmington, Ohio. Ursula McTaggart’s newest book is Guerrillas in the Industrial JungleRadicalism’s Primitive and Industrial Rhetoric. She has written many articles, including “Motherhood and Work in the Pandemic.” They discuss the U.S. response to the pandemic and the deep, intense dilemmas and troubles it’s created for mothers, especially those with little help and lower incomes.  She relates her experience as a worker and mother and principal caretaker/teacher of two young school-aged children with their schools closed. McTaggart proposes feasible structural changes that would create profound democratic possibilities.
