The Virtual Fireside Chat Presentation by Madison Clark
Madison Clark delivered a presentation titled, “Si vis pacem, para bellum: Everyday women, militarised behaviours, and opportunistic gendered violence” on 21 October 2020.
Positioned at an intersection of gender, security, military, and conflict studies, Madison's project draws parallels between everyday women's behaviours and those of formally militarised combatants. Madison utilizes feminist theory, original survey data, and experimental autoethnography to illustrate how, while in public spaces, women act as soldiers out of concern for opportunistic gendered violence.
