“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. 

Join us at this end-of-semester academic career reception to unpack and explore assumptions and challenges surrounding gender in international security scholarship and this academic career path. Meet the growing cohort of women academics researching and teaching international security at the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre; and mingle with our staff, students, alumni and other stakeholders as we debate international security. 

Featuring: Professor Joan Beaumont, Professor Evelyn Goh, Dr Aurore Chow, Dr Amy King, Dr Meighen McCrae, Dr Joanne Wallis.
