Assistant Instructional Professor

Kara Ann Hooser is Assistant Instructional Professor in the Committee on International Relations (CIR). Her research interests include feminist and postcolonial theory, critical peace studies, the Women, Peace, and Security agenda, and interpretive methods. Kara's research is motivated by an interest in re-peopling the study of international security and by the possibilities for transformation that grow from taking peace and the theorizing of peace as seriously as political science has taken war. Her most recent work uses interpretive methods to trace the stories of everyday people living in the aftermath of war and highlights the role of 'good guy' masculinities in perpetuating violence in post-conflict spaces.

In CIR, Kara offers the core seminar on International Order and Security, as well as electives in Critical, Feminist and Postcolonial Approaches to Global Politics and Peace in International Relations.
