PPR428: Gender, War and Security in International Relations
War is a defining characteristic of international relations, understood by the field of international relations as armed conflict conducted by or threatening the security of a nation state. Until recently, gender has not been seen as an important aspect of securing states and their citizens. Drawing on materials from international relations, security studies, gender studies, and the arts, this course considers a variety of ways in which gender relations of power affect the planning and conduct of war today as well as the experiences ordinary people have in today's wars. The course aims:
