Anne McClintock: “Invisible Wars: Imperial Ghosting, Pornography, and the Global Crisis of Masculinity” – April 8, 2014

McClintock explores the ghosted connections between the crisis of imperial violence in the U.S. War on Terror and the global upsurge of gender violence. She critiques the persistent argument after 9-11 that pornography is the primary cause of male violence, torture (as at Abu Ghraib) and rape, and offers an alternative theory for understanding the gendered dynamics of imperial violence, the global crisis of masculinity, and the invisible war on women.

This lecture will be of interest to those concerned about international relations, literary studies, human rights, European and US history, masculinity, war, colonization/imperialism, pornography, prison, global economics, and more!
