Today for the second half of the one o’clock hour we’ll talk with Cynthia Enloe.
She is in town today to give the 1st annual Korenman lecture at UMBC, today at 4:30 pm. Go here for more information!
I don’t know how one gets to become known as “an international feminist treasure,” but I imagine it involves being pretty smart and interesting. She is the author of Bananas, Beaches and Bases: Making Feminist Sense of International Politics, Maneuvers, The International Politics of Militarizing Women’s Lives, and, The Curious Feminist: Searching for Women in a New Age of Empire
She writes and teaches about the interplay of women’s politics in the international arena. One example she focuses on is the implications for women that exist in the War in Iraq. What does it mean for feminism? What does it mean for the welfare of women in the Middle East?
