Parades, Parties and Pests: Contradictions of Everyday Life in Peacekeeping Economies|

Wednesday 21 January | 5.30-6.30pm | NAB.1.04, New Academic Building

Dr Marsha Henry is Associate Professor at the Gender Institute. Her research interests focus on three main research areas: gender and development; gender and militarisation; and qualitative methodologies.

This research seminar is based on studies conducted in the UN peacekeeping mission in Liberia in 2006 and 2012.  Dr Henry argues that peacekeepers' everyday experiences reflect a series of contradictory identities and performances in regard to their national militaries, labour and leisure time, and gender roles.
