How Long Does "Post-War" Last? Feminist Warnings

Download: Audio, Video

Editor's note: We apologise for the poor audio quality during the first few minutes of Professor Cynthia Enloe’s presentation.

Speaker(s): Professor Cynthia Enloe

Recorded on 5 November 2012 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

"Post-war" in many societies is a time of flux when new, more just gender relationships can be forged. But a post-war era, if left unattended, is even more likely to be a time when masculinized structures and cultures can become re-established.

Cynthia Enloe is research professor of international developmentm and of women’s studies at Clark University, Massachusetts.

This event is supported by the Department of International Relations.
