Professor Cynthia Enloe [wikipedia] is the author of ground-breaking works such as “Bananas, Beaches and Bases: Making Feminist Sense of International Politics” and The Morning After: Sexual Politics at the End of the Cold War. She is also Research Professor at Clark University.
Yesterday she gave a clear and compelling lecture at the University of Manchester, followed by an equally useful and engaging question and answer session (which is rare, and harder than it looks)
You can see the lecture and the question and answer sessions below. The video footage of the questioners is ‘blanked out’ but the audio works fine.
Thank you for recoding the videos. I didn’t mind you could have Included my face but doesn’t matter. Very interesting and useful. Much appreciate it. Best wishes
Glad you liked! I didn’t record anyone’s face in the questions because I’d not asked permission.
In future, what I would do is ask the organisers to ask the people asking questions if they were happy being filmed!
All best wishes
I know her books on memory 🙂 Crazy! She is great!
Sometimes academics I admire have ‘feet of clay’ in real life. But Professor Enloe was both engaging and genuinely interested in the questions (not just going through the motions/cut and pasting her answers). Impressive!
