Gender Trouble in the U.S. Military

What is the state of female combat integration across the military services? Join Bard Globalization and International Affairs for Gender Trouble in the U.S. Military: Where Do We Go from Here? on March 12, 6-7:30pm, when Stephanie Szitanyi and Asha Castleberry will look at this question.

Dr. Szitanyi’s new book Gender Trouble in the U.S. Military, focuses on gender inclusion in our armed forces over the past century. Join the conversation about governmental policy shifts - permitting openly LGBT persons to serve and women to engage in combat, contending with military sexual assault - and consequences including the impact on prevailing concepts of masculinity. Applying feminist perspectives to the analysis of visual, textual, archival, and cultural materials, Dr. Szitanyi argues that despite military policy changes and (re)gendering processes, officials have attempted to counteract shifts, uphold the institution’s hetero-male privilege, and promote the masculine warrior version of masculinity.
