Congratulations to Dr Lauren Wilcox, Deputy Director of UCCGS, for winning the International Studies Association Theory Section's Best Book Award for 2016 at the recent ISA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA.  Dr Wilcox's recent book, Bodies of Violence: Theorizing Embodied Subjects in International Relations, engages with feminist and queer theory to provide a re-reading of several contemporary modes of political violence and its management, which aims at moving from bodies being an 'absent presence' in studies of war and security (such as torture, force-feeding, suicide bombing, drones and more) to considering a political analysis of bodies and embodiment as both shaped by, and productive of, practices of violence.
