Overview

J. Ann Tickner is ranked among the most influential scholars of international relations. As one of the founders of the field of feminist international relations, she is also among the most pioneering. In many ways her academic career has traced the development of the feminist subfield of IR, and it is no overstatement to say that the field today would look much different without her groundbreaking contributions.

A Feminist Voyage through International Relations provides a compendium of Tickner's work as a feminist IR scholar, from the late 1980s through today. The book addresses the issue of methodology in feminist IR and the continuing challenge from traditional IR scholars that feminists don't perform legitimate scientific research. Tickner introduces and contextualizes her previous writings with new essays that trace her intellectual development as a feminist scholar. The chapters consider the introduction of women and gender into the conversation about IR, as well as feminist methodological interventions and conversations with the IR mainstream. The final section of the book includes some of Tickner's later writings on topics including race, imperialism, and religion. She ends with thoughts on the present currents of feminist IR and its place within the wider discipline.

Given the way that her career has mirrored the evolution of the subfield, Tickner's book provides a methodological and epistemological story of feminist interventions in IR and a thoughtful reflection on where the field is headed in the future.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"J. Ann Tickner never rests on her laurels. Once again, she is pushing us here to think afresh about what it means to explore International Relations - who we are when we are doing it, when and where we are standing when we research, write, teach and learn. This is an invigorating feminist voyage. Don't miss the boat!" —Cynthia Enloe, author of Seriously! Investigating Crashes and Crises as If Women Mattered

"J. Ann Tickner's personal intellectual journey parallels the development of feminist IR over the past 25 years. No other feminist scholar has communicated as effectively and consistently the contributions of feminist theory to IR theory. This collection of Tickner's work, which assembles for the first time her work on the discipline, on method, and on contemporary issues, along with some new and insightful self-reflections on the development of the field, illustrates well the breadth and depth of her contributions to IR." —Thomas Biersteker, Director, The Graduate Institute, Geneva

"J. Ann Tickner's political project to transform mainstream IR has been a consistent one throughout her career, as this volume of some of her most important work amply demonstrates. With this collection we get to share part of the journey, a feminist voyage through which conversations, reflexivity and a more inclusionary global politics is being created." —Sandra Whitworth, Professor of Political Science, York University
