Gender, War, and Conflict with Laura Sjoberg

  • Georgetown University 3600 N Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20007 United States (map)

Remapping IR is an occasional series of talks on alternative perspectives to power, states, and the international system. Jointly sponsored by the Department of Government and the Mortara Center for International Studies at Georgetown, the goal of this series is to showcase the diversity of cutting-edge approaches that exist to understand global politics. At the same time, it intends to broaden the intellectual discussion on who, how and what matters for international affairs.

In Sjoberg's book, Gender, War and Conflict, she explores how gender matters in war-making and war-fighting today. Drawing on examples from conflicts around the world, she argues that gender can be found at every turn in the practice of war; it is crucial to understanding not only ‘what war is’, but equally how it is caused, fought and experienced.
