Assistant Professor of International Relations at the University of Sheffield
Jennifer Greenburg is Assistant Professor of International Relations at the University of Sheffield in the UK. She is a feminist political geographer working on areas of war, gender, and humanitarianism. Her first book, At War with Women: Military Humanitarianism and Imperial Feminism in an Era of Permanent War (Cornell University Press, 2023), reveals how post-9/11 politics of gender and development have transformed US military power. Another dimension of her work is grounded in Haiti, where she is concerned with the violence and securitized legacy of humanitarian interventions. She holds a PhD in Geography from the University of California, Berkeley and has held fellowships at Stanford University and the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University. She is a contributor to the Costs of War project and her recent publications appear in Antipode, Critical Military Studies, Development and Change, and Gender, Place, and Culture.
