Enloe adds insights to PBS series on ‘Women, War and Peace’

Secretaries of State, leading activists also in final episode premiering Nov. 8

Cynthia Enloe, Research Professor at Clark University’s Department of International Development, Community, and Environment and Women’s and Gender Studies, will appear in the finale of the acclaimed, five-part PBS series, Women, War & Peace.” The final episode, titled “War Redefined,” will premiere on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

According to PBS, this final episode “challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men’s domain through incisive interviews with leading thinkers, Secretaries of State and seasoned survivors of war and peace-making.”

Along with Enloe’s interview, “War Redefined” includes conversations with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Madeleine Albright; Liberian peace activist Leymah Gbowee; Bosnian war crimes investigator Fadila Memisevic; Zainab Salbi, Founder of Women for Women International; globalization expert Moisés Naím; and others. The final segment is narrated by actress Geena Davis.

Enloe is in Iceland and will have to wait to view the PBS episode. She had delivered the keynote address for the University of Iceland’s Center for Women’s and Gender Research 20th anniversary celebration.

In 2010, Enloe was awarded the Howard Zinn Lifetime Achievement in Peace Studies Award by the Peace and Justice Studies Association. For more, click here.
