Cynthia Enloe is research professor in the Department of International Development, Community, and Environment at Clark University. Her feminist teaching and research have focused on the interplay of women’s politics in the national and international arenas, with special attention to how women’s labor is made cheap in globalized factories (especially sneaker factories) and how women’s emotional and physical labor has been used to support many governments’ war-waging policies—and how diverse women have tried to resist both of those efforts. Racial, class, ethnic and national identities as well as pressures shaping ideas about femininities and masculinities are common threads throughout her studies. Her recent publications include Nimo’s War, Emma’s War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War (2010), and The Real State of America Atlas: Mapping the Myths and Truths of the United States (2011), coauthored with Joni Seager.
