Author profile: Matthew Kearns

Matthew Kearns is a doctoral candidate in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology at Newcastle University, UK.

Through this, his research speaks to wider feminist debates concerning military masculinities and their potential to become displaced in changing security contexts. He has recently published work in the International Feminist Journal of Politics on gender, visual securitization and the 2001 war in Afghanistan.
