About our Speakers

Cynthia Enloe is currently a Research Professor in the International Development, Community, and Environment Department (IDCE). Professor Enloe’s feminist teaching and research have focused on the interplay of women’s politics in the national and international arenas, with special attention to how women’s labor is made cheap in globalized factories (especially sneaker factories) and how women’s emotional and physical labor has been used to support many governments’ war-waging policies—and how diverse women have tried to resist both of those efforts. Racial, class, ethnic and national identities as well as pressures shaping ideas about femininities and masculinities are common threads throughout her studies.
