Froula presents, publishes on military policy

Congratulations to Anna Froula, who recently published an invited chapter in The Routledge History of Gender, War, and the U.S. Military titled “9/11, Gender, and Wars without End.” This chapter explores changes in military policy regarding gender (the lifting of the ban on women in combat) and sexuality (ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell) since 9/11 and analyzes the ways in which notions of traditional modes of gender were deployed in service of martialing support for the long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Dr. Froula also recently presented “Dialogues on Experience: Soldier to Scholar” at the American Studies Association in Chicago, IL. This presentation explored the purpose and effects of her NEH-funded Soldier to Scholar bridge program.
