Fall 2013 semester begins soon and calendars are already marked with class times and meetings. The dean and his staff would like to take the time to congratulate Arts & Sciences world-class faculty and students on the numerous awards received in the 2012-2013 year.

This website is dedicated to those who have worked countless hours to make the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Memphis an outstanding academic institution.

In addition to recognition of annual faculty awards this site includes the Faculty Service Awards.

You'll also find an AGENDA for the College of Arts & Sciences mandatory faculty meeting to be held on Wednesday, August 21 at 2:00-3:30 pm in the Psychology Auditorium. All full-time faculty are required to attend this meeting.

This book explores the broad terrain of security studies through a gender lens. Assumptions about masculinity and femininity play important roles in how we understand and react to security threats. By examining issues of militarization, peacekeeping, terrorism, human security, and environmental security, the book considers how the gender-security nexus pushes us to ask different questions and broaden our sphere of analysis. It demonstrates that security debates exhibit gendered understandings of key concepts, and whilst these gendered assumptions may benefit specific people, they are often detrimental to others, particularly in the key realm of policy-making.
