Megan MacKenzie – University of Copenhagen

Megan MacKenzie

Megan MacKenzie is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Government and International Relations and a member of the Centre for International Security Studies at the University of Sydney. Megan’s research bridges feminist international relations, security studies, and development studies. Her interest in images stems from three themes within her work: gender, identity, and nationalism, see with Marianne Bevan, 'Cowboy Policing: Observing Policing Masculinities in East Timor' (International Feminist Journal of Politics, 2012); and the role of emotion in international relations, see 'Their Personal is Political, Not Mine: Feminism and Emotion' (International Studies Review, 2011).  Megan’s current work on gender and the role of mythology, popular movies, and icons in shaping American military identity is funded with a Discovery Early Career Research Award from the Australian Research Council. Megan’s contribution to Images and International Security will draw from her expertise on gender, representation and identity formation.
