Jennifer L. Fluri
Jennifer L. Fluri professor of geography at the University of Colorado Boulder. At the time of filming, she was an associate professor of geography and women’s and gender studies at Dartmouth College. She completed her PhD in 2005 at Pennsylvania State University in geography and women’s studies. Her dissertation work on feminist geopolitics in Afghanistan has made her a frequent speaker on the subject. Fluri’s earlier research on gender and etiquette in white supremacist movements has also been widely published. Her current research enlarges on the themes in her dissertation on Afghan refugees, feminist resistance, and the women-led political organization, The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA). She has also investigated the role and impact of international organizations in Afghanistan related to gender and nationalism. She is drawn to areas where gender intersects with politics, religion, power, economics, and ethnicity, particularly in South Asia and the Middle East.
