1. Abdulhadi, Rabab. "War Makers and Peace Makers: Conceptualizing the Masculine and Feminine in Gender and Violence Research Studies" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Oakland Marriott City Center, Oakland, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-12-14 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p573502_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: Drawing on interview with Palestinian women and men militants and words of suicide bombers (videos, families, friends) and contrasting this primary data with writings and analysis on gender and violence in the US and international scholarship, this paper discusses the dialectics of gender and violence in the context of empire and settler colonialism and critiques the canonical notion of men as war makers and women as peace makers. The paper will further propose alternative feminist frameworks for the indivisibility of justice.

Abstract: This study outlines the portrayal of tobacco issues in the US press over one year. Press coverage is mapped in order to understand its impact on key tobacco use behaviors and policy decisions. Our textual analysis incorporates 6,332 newspaper articles from 350 U.S. daily newspapers.

Newspaper coverage reflects events occurring nationally, and at the state and local levels. It represents attitudes on the part of both the public and newsmakers. The pressÂ’ treatment of issues shapes popular attitudes, acts as an agent of public education, and plays an important role in determining the policy agenda (Baillie, 1996). Previous research of the coverage of particular tobacco issues has revealed patterns in terms of its content, slant and frame (Magzamen et al, 2001; Malone et al, 2000), but as yet, however, there has been little comprehensive consideration of press coverage of tobacco, and the potentially competing messages that such coverage may convey.

Abstract: Europe, as a signifier, is deeply embedded in the American soul. With Europe as part of its true essence, America has been unable to articulate itself without buying in some way ? either through exclusion or inclusion ? into Europe. During the early formative years, Europe figured predominantly as America?s Other. Europe was seen as the ?non-we? to leave behind and depart from, albeit at the same time the self-understanding was one of a ?new? and better Europe. More recently, after a long period of the U.S. having able to apply a basically inclusive approach and figuring as a rather forceful Europe-maker, there have been signs of the unfolding of a new split. The rift, exemplified among other things by Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld?s delineation onto ?old? and ?new? Europe appears to flow from efforts of re-casting what the U.S. is about. The previous fix and anchorage ? including the West as a major unifying marker - that have been conducive to rather close transatlantic bonds seem to have been upset by the challenge of 9/11 and the challenges posed by the Iraq war.The aim of the contribution is to place the old/new contestation and the strains detectable as to Western marker into historical perspective, probe the way the U.S. has been projecting itself into the sphere of international relations since 9/11 and, in particular, examine the ways in which the signifier of Europe has been more recently approached in the American debate. The identity-related perspective is then used in order to pass judgement on the way the U.S. may be expected to perform as a Europe-maker in the years to come.

Abstract: Most analysts portray globalization as a process that generates a set of incentives and disincentives that constitute a relatively homogenous context in which countries devise their developmental strategies. This examination of financial globalization demonstrates that globalization provides a radically different strategic context for various countries. Globalization provides the United States with many lucrative opportunities but only limited competitive pressures to reform. It generates relentless economic incentives for reform for middle-tier countries like India who have prospects for attracting substantial foreign capital inflows. Countries on the periphery of international markets, like Cote D?Ivoire, are motivated to reform more by international financial organizations and global norms.
