Is There a ‘Post-9/11 Sneaker’?: Feminist Clues about Women Workers and Globalized Security

Cynthia Enloe is a professor of government and the director of the women's studies department at Clark University. She studies the impact of millitarism, state policies and politics on the lives of women throughout the world. She was a Radcliffe Fellow in 2001 and has been the recipient of numerous other distinctions. Enloe will give “Is There a 'Post-9/11 Sneaker'?: Feminist Clues about Women Workers and Globalized Security” at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 19, in the Geneva Room. Enloe's talk will draw on her long-standing interest in the politics of globalization as it shapes–and relies on–women's feminized factory work, especially in the international sneaker industry. The following morning there will be a roundtable discussion at 8:45 a.m. in the Fisher Center.
