Hear women security scholars from the Strategic & Defence Studies Centre at ANU unpack and explore assumptions and challenges surrounding gender in international security scholarship, and this academic career path.
“The field of international security is particularly male-dominated, whether in academia, the armed forces, policy practice, or the private sector. In academia, courses related to international security tend to be heavily delivered by male lecturers and tutors, reading lists feature predominantly male writers, and critical approaches that focus on gendered practices or analysis are rarely covered.” Discuss.
This reception event was the sixth of the ‘Women in International Security: Theory and Practice’ Seminar Series 2018-19, jointly sponsored by the ANU Gender Institute and the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre. Consisting of research, career development, and policy dialogue seminars, this series showcases the work of prominent women in the fields of international security.
