New Hampshire International Seminar (NHIS) featuring Ieva Jusionyte

Thursday, April 25, 2024 - 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Memorial Union Building Theater I

For our final NHIS talk of the Spring 2024 semester on Thursday, April 25 at 12:40-2pm in MUB Theater I, we are excited to bring Dr. Ieva Jusionyte to campus. Dr. Jusionyte is a Watson Family University Associate Professor of International Security and Anthropology at Brown University. Her talk, "Exit Wounds: American Guns and the Vicious Circle of Violence on the US-Mexico Border," focuses on the critical nexus of gun production and violence on the US southern border. Dr. Jusionyte’s scholarship explores the conceptual and material relationship between the state and various forms of violence. She uses ethnography as a method and a form of storytelling to examine the narratives, aesthetics, and practices that underlie security.

The New Hampshire International Seminar (NHIS) is a series of talks organized by the International Affairs Program at UNH to cultivate community-wide dialogue on critical global issues. Join us on this intellectual journey, where UNH faculty, staff, students, and community members come together to explore the pivotal facets of international affairs that shape our world!

This event is sponsored by the Department of Political Science and International Affairs with generous support from the Center for the Humanities, the Responsible Governance and Sustainable Citzenship Porject (RGSCP), Department of Anthropology, Department of History, and the COLA Office of the Dean.
