I return this fall to Ithaca College after interesting work in Adelaide, Australia on indigenous feminist communities as well as the new female prime minister, Julia Guillard.  I hope to share this new work with my students as well as continue exploring and writing on my newest project, "Urgent Articulations: Bodeis, Food, Death and War". 

Fall, 2009-10 I returned from a sabbatical year of travel and writing and was excited to share my new thinking with my students and colleagues. I spent time in Capetown, South Africa and lectured on issues of race and gender in the global economy and Obama's campaign. I also worked with women from across the globe on evaluating the role of women in the new militarism of the globe.  I  shared my newest thinking that I term the "newest new" in my most recently published book, fall 2009: "The Audacity of Races and Genders, A Personal and Global Story of the Obama Campaign".
