Abstract

This roundtable addresses the connections between the often masculinised connotations of international security and warfare, and representations of femininity and masculinity. Drawing on their experience at the intersection of research, activism, and security practice, speakers will expose how media such as fashion, photography, cinema, and television shape and sometimes challenge received ideas on violence, gender, and sex.
