Kathleen Barry holds two doctorates—in sociology and in education—from the University of California, Berkeley. Having taught at major universities for over twenty years, she is now a university Professor Emerita. A Distinguished Visiting Professor at several universities, she was the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship to Ireland and an invited scholar at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences) in Paris. The author of five books and an internationally recognized feminist/human rights activist, she lectures widely in the U.S. and abroad.
Unmaking War, Remaking Men, her latest book, introduces new concepts such as core masculinity and expendable lives. It exposes how masculinity and the military prepare men for killing and introduces new approaches to world peace and a new masculinity that is already in the making.
There will surely be many questions about a previous book, Drones or Boys and their Toys: The USA’s Latest Strategy for Unending War.
This promises to be an intensely interesting meeting, but with a great deal of common ground.
