Cynthia Enloe, who grew up on Long Island and received a Ph.D. from the University of California/Berkeley, has served as chair of Clark's Government Department and Director of Women's Studies. Professor Enloe is currently a Research Professor in the IDCE Department and teaches the intensive seven-week seminar, Gender, Militarization, and Development. She has been awarded Clark's Outstanding Teacher of the Year three times (it's obvious why when you hear the show) and has been named the University Senior Faculty Fellow for Excellence in Teaching and Scholarship.Enloe's feminist teaching and research has focused on the interplay of women's politics in the national and international arenas, with special attention to how women's labor is made cheap in globalized factories (especially sneaker factories) and how women's emotional and physical labor has been used to support governments' war-waging policies and how many women have tried to resist both of those efforts. Racial, class, ethnic, and national identities and pressures shaping ideas about feminini?ies and masculinities have been common threads throughout her studies. In recent years, Enloe has been invited to lecture and give special seminars on feminism, militarization, and globalization in Japan, Korea, Turkey, Canada, Britain and numerous colleges across the U.S. She has written for Ms. Magazine and Village Voice and has appeared on National Public Radio and the BBC. She serves on the editorial boards of several scholarly journals, including Signs and the International Feminist Journal of Politics. Among her nine books are: The Morning After: Sexual Politics at the End of the Cold War (1993), Bananas, Beaches and Bases: Making Feminist Sense of International Politics (2000), Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women's Lives (2000), and The Curious Feminist: Searching for Women in a New Age of Empire, (2004). All of these are published by the University of California Press <>(www.ucpress.edu).
