Gender and Global Order Today – Sightings, Sites, and Resistances

Gender and Global Order Today – Sightings, Sites, and Resistances

Thursday, November 11 – 6:00-9:00PM
Theresa Lang Center – The New School – 55 W. 13th St @ 6th Avenue

All are welcome to attend this very special event! Come hear noted feminist international relations scholars, Anne Sisson Runyan and Marianne Marchand, discuss the ongoing relationship between gender and neoliberal globalization as the pall of global economic and political crisis deepens across the world. Among the questions they will address –

  • How does a gender lens alter our vision of conventional accounts of globalization and move us to more complex understandings of global restructuring?
  • What are the gendered effects of globalization on women’s lives across the world?
  • How is globalization changing gendered ideologies and relations in different national and regional contexts?
  • How is global order today being shaped and altered by trends in increasing militarization, heteronormative development policies, labor migration, and transnational feminist activism? How can we understand the interplay of sites, sights, and resistances in the (re)making of global order?

A panel discussion will follow with New School professors Lily H.M. Ling, Ann Snitow, and Jonathan Bach, moderated by Alexandra Delano. This event celebrates the launch of the Global Studies Program and Gender Studies Program at The New School as well as the second edition of Runyan and Marchand’s path-breaking work, Gender and Global Restructuring. Reception to follow.
