Women’s Studies Program Presents: Picking up the Pieces 

DESCRIPTION: WOMEN’S STUDIES PROGRAM Spring 2010 Lecture Series Gender and Islam: Local to the Global Perspectives Presents Picking up the Pieces: Taking Women Seriously in Tallying the True Costs of the Iraq War Cynthia Enloe, Research Professor, Department of International Development, Community, and Environment and Women’s Studies at Clark University. Cynthia Enloe’s feminist teaching and research have focused on the interplay of women’s politics in the national and international arenas. In particular, her research focuses on the devaluation of women’s work in globalized factories, the exploitation of women’s emotional and physical labor in support of governments’ war-waging policies, and women’s efforts in resisting both. Racial, class, ethnic, and national identities and pressure shaping ideas about femininities and masculinities have been common threads throughout her studies. In 2009, she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies. Enloe’s twelve books include Bananas, Beaches and Bases: Making Feminist Sense of International Politics(2000), Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women’s Lives(2004), and Globalization and Militarism: Feminists Make the Link (2007). Her newest book is Nimo’s War, Emma’s War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War (forthcoming from University of California Press, Spring 2010).
