Dunn Presents on Africa and Protests War

Kevin Dunn recently attended the International Studies Association conference in Portland, Ore. In addition to his responsibilities as section/program chair for the Global Development Studies section, Dunn presented two papers – “Fatal Attraction: The Dark Side of Regionalization in Central Africa,” which examined the numerous ways in which the processes of regionalization in Africa have negatively impacted human security and development, and “Narrating Identity: Constructing the Congo During the 1960 Crisis,” which employed the case of the Congo in 1960 to illustrate the material impact of the discursive construction of a state's identity. Dunn also organized and engaged in numerous anti-war activities. The association had never experienced any form of political protest in its 50+ year history. Because of his anti-war activities, Dunn appeared on several local Portland television stations.
