January on ‘The MacMillan Report’
“Mobilizing Under Uncertainty” and “The Masculinities of Post-Colonial Governance” were the topics explored in January on “The MacMillan Report,” a one-on-one interview show presented by Yale’s Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale.
Designed to showcase the innovative research by Yale faculty in international and area studies, “The MacMillan Report” is hosted by Marilyn Wilkes, communications director at the MacMillan Center, and airs on Wednesdays at noon during the academic year. Each segment runs between 15 and 20 minutes long.
Launched in October of 2008, the show has featured more than 200 faculty members (see the show’s archive).
Here are the two shows broadcast in January.
“Mobilizing Under Uncertainty
Guest: Anastasia Shesterinina, visiting fellow, Program on Order, Conflict, and Violence
Anastasia Shesterinina’s main research area is the internal dynamics of armed conflict. She recently published an article in the American Political Science Review titled “Collective Threat Framing and Mobilization in Civil War.” The article builds upon and extends her fieldwork-intensive doctoral dissertation, which analyzes violent mobilization across the civil war stages in the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict.
“The Masculinities of Post-Colonial Governance: Bureaucratic Memoirs of the Indian Civil Service”
Guest: Inderpal Grewal, professor of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies
Inderpal Grewal is the author of “Home and Harem: Nation, Gender, Empire and the Cultures of Travel” and “Transnational America: Feminisms, Diasporas, Neoliberalisms.” She has also published several edited and coedited collections. Her ongoing projects include essays on the relation between transnational media, and corruption and sexual violence.
