"IR'S HIDDEN FIGURES"- FEMINIST THEORIST J. ANN TICKNER

Ann Tickner is one of the most widely recognised names in the field of International Relations. Considered a pioneer of Feminist IR theory, her work has highlighted the importance of analysing international relations through a gendered lens. On International Women’s Day, she will be appearing via Skype to speak to students and professors at the University of St Andrews. She will be talking about her current research, which focuses on early twentieth century women and their peacebuilding efforts during and after World War I, something that, she feels, has been completely forgotten - or never acknowledged - by the discipline.
