With this episode we are opening our Debating Peace (Studies) Series

The first episode in this Series  features Professor Annick Wibben, whom we asked what are the themes that emerge through feminist engagement with peace studies. We used her most recent article “Collective Discussion: Piecing-Up Feminist Peace Research”  to discuss what is  critical feminist peace research and how can we make use of utopian imagining in classrooms.

 

Annick Wibben is the first Anna Lindh Professor of Gender, Peace and Security at the Swedish Defence University in Stockholm. Her research interests include critical security and military studies, international theory, peace studies, and feminist international relations. Professor Wibben is the founder and coordinator of the Feminist Security Studies Network, and at the moment is involved with Feminist Peace Research Network. She is best known for her 2011 book “Feminist Security Studies: A Narrative Approach” (Routledge).

Prior to joining Swedish Defence University, Annick Wibben was the director of the Peace and Justice Program and Professor of Politics and International Studies at the University of San Francisco, California (2005-2019).

Her most recent article – “Collective Discussion: Piecing-Up Feminist Peace Research” – that we talked about in this podcast episode was published in International Political Sociology (2018) 0, 1-22 https://doi.org/10.1093/ips/oly034
