The Gleeson Library is pleased to welcome University of San Francisco Associate Professor Annick T.R. Wibben who will read from her book Feminist Security Studies: a Narrative Approach (Routledge, 2011) on Wednesday, May 2nd in the Donohue Rare Book Room. The book rethinks security theory from a feminist perspective and challenges the way we think about security, violence and war. Professor Wibben teaches international politics and specializes in critical security studies, international theory, and feminist international relations. Prior to teaching at the University of San Francisco, she worked with the Information Technology, War and Peace Project at the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University from 2001-2005. Her article “Feminist Politics in Feminist Security Studies” (2011) was published in Politics & Gender and “The Gendering of Counterinsurgency in Afghanistan” (co-authored with Keally McBride) is forthcoming in Humanity. She is the Chair of the Bachelor in International Studies program and serves as an Advisory Board Member to Gender and Sexualities Studies; Peace and Justice Studies; and the Master program in International Studies.
The program begins at 5:15 on Wednesday, May 2nd in the Donohue Rare Book Room, located on the third floor of the Gleeson Library. Light refreshments will be served and books will be available for purchase. The program is free and open to the public. All are welcome to attend. For further information, please call (415) 422-2036.
