Exclusionary Inclusion: 100 Years of Gender Trouble in the U.S. Military

Stephanie Szitanyi and Melissa T. Brown discuss Szitanyi's new book, Gender Trouble in the U.S. Military, and 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, 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.

Date: Friday, Oct. 4

Time: 11am - 12:30pm
