Political Worlds of Women: Author talk and discussion at Alexander Library, Tues. August 6

June 24, 2013
Mary Hawkesworth
cover of Political Worlds of Women

Rutgers Professor Mary Hawkesworth will discuss her new book, Political Worlds of Women: Activism, Advocacy, and Governance in the Twenty-First Century, at the final summer Writer’s Reading & Reception event, 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6 at the Alexander Library’s fourth floor Scholarly Communication Center. Dr. Hawkesworth will draw upon case studies from across the globe to address critical issues such as immigration and citizenship, the politics of representation, sexual regulation, and gender mainstreaming.

Attendees will be entered in a drawing for one of ten copies of Hawkesworth’s latest work, hailed by Dr. Janine Brodie of the University of Alberta, as a “a forceful and comprehensive account of the dynamic intersection of gender and race and the embodiment of power in contemporary global politics. It is a must read.”  

Mary Hawkesworth, Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers, conducts research on embodied power, women and politics; gender, globalization and democratization; contemporary feminist activism, and the politics of inquiry within the discipline of political science and the interdisciplinary field of women’s and gender studies. Mary has been the editor of Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society since 2005. Signs is a University of Chicago publication and one of the premier journals in feminist and women's and gender studies.

This Writer’s Reading & Reception is brought to you by the Rutgers Summer Session and the Rutgers University Libraries. Admission is free to the campus community, but space is limited. To reserve your seat, please click here.
