Fall 2015 Political Science Workshop
Gender, Politics, and Security
Monday, 9 1800-2100 Nov 15 in Room Currie 200, Royal Military College of Canada
Given the popular and polemical nature of gender studies, how has this perspective informed the study of security? Indeed, in light of recent events, reports, and controversies, how can an awareness of the gender perspective change attitudes, values, and perceptions in favour of a more inclusive and professional environment? What role does gender play in security? This workshop seeks to explore these questions in the hopes of furthering the discussion on the role of gender in security studies.
