Dr. Jane Parpart: Rethinking Silence, Gender & Power in Insecure Sites

Parpart Flyer.jpgRethinking Silence, Gender & Power in Insecure Sites: Implications for Feminist Security Studies and Feminist Global Political Economy in a Postcolonial World
Dr. Jane Parpart, University of Massachusetts, Boston

Friday, April 20
1:30-3:00pm, B310 Wells Hall

Silence is no longer simply a symptom of powerlessness. It has emerged as a tool for empowerment, an alternative source of protection and power. Silence has become a form of action, often intertwined with voice, but powerful on its own. Dr. Parpart will discuss this more complex understanding of silence and voice in order to evaluate gender in insecure sites.  A PDF of the flyer is available here.
