Joanna Regulska research on "Displacement, State Violence and Gender Roles: The Case of Internally Displaced and Violence-Affected Georgian Women" published in Berghahn Books

Joanna Regulska, Beth Mitchneck, and Peter Kabachnik research was published in the book Gender In Georgia Feminist Perspectives on Culture, Nation, and History in the South Caucasus. Their chapter is titled "Displacement, State Violence, and Gender Roles: The Case of Internally Displaced and Violence-Affected Georgian Women." 

As Georgia, Russia seeks to reinvent itself as a nation-state in the post-Soviet period, Georgian women are maneuvering, adjusting, resisting and transforming the new economic, social and political order. In Gender in Georgia, editors Maia Barkaia and Alisse Waterston bring together an international group of feminist scholars to explore the socio-political and cultural conditions that have shaped gender dynamics in Georgia from the late 19th century to the present. In doing so, they provide the first-ever woman-centered collection of research on Georgia, offering a feminist critique of power in its many manifestations, and an assessment of women’s political agency in Georgia.
