Feminist Theory and International Relations in a Postmodern Era by Christine Sylvester

Book Description

This book evaluates the major debates around which the discipline of international relations has developed in the light of contemporary feminist theories. The three debates (realist versus idealist, scientific versus traditional, modernist versus postmodernist) have been subject to feminist theorising since the earliest days of known feminist activities, with the current emphasis on feminist, empiricist standpoint and postmodernist ways of knowing. Christine Sylvester shows how feminist theorising could have affected our understanding of international relations had it been included in the three debates. She elaborates a feminist method of empathetically cooperative conversation which challenges the identity politics of IR, and illustrates that method with reference to the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp and the efforts of Zimbabwean women to negotiate international funding for their local producer cooperatives.

War as Experience by Christine Sylvester War as Experience, Paperback (September 2012)

Contributes to our understanding of war and international relations (IR). This book surveys the state of war and war studies in international relations, security studies and in feminist international relations. It addresses a missing area of IR studies of war that feminism is well-placed to fill in: the emotional and physical aspects of war.

Experiencing War by Christine Sylvester Experiencing War, Hardback (October 2010)

Presents the thinking on war as a physical and emotional experience for those who touch and are touched by it politically, through feelings, and through physical activities, ranging from combat to TV viewing.

Art/Museums by Christine Sylvester Art/Museums, Hardback (November 2008)

Takes the study of international relations to the art museum. This book focuses on the British Museum, the National Gallery of London, the Museum of Iraq, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Getty museums, the Guggenheim museums, and 'museum' spaces instantly created by the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001.
