Dr. Laura Considine is a Lecturer in International Relations and co-Director of the Centre for Global Security Challenges at the University of Leeds. I have published research on nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation and the role of language and narrative in international politics. I am currently working on a project on the gendering of nuclear weapons policy spaces. L.Considine@leeds.ac.uk

Emily Faux was selected to be part of the first cohort of mentees for the Young Women in Non-Proliferation and Disarmament, a highly competitive mentorship programme funded by the EU and hosted by the International Affairs Institute (IAI) and the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP). She is the President of Leeds Pugwash, most recently organising an event with the UK's Shadow Minister for Peace and Disarmament. Alongside these commitments, Emily is a part-time Research Assistant, working in collaboration with The University of Leeds, Savanta, and the NHS. Emily is undertaking a MA in Political Communication, having received a scholarship after graduating with a BA in International Relations that was at the very top of her cohort. Emily is hoping to begin a PhD Studentship in 2022, focusing on Nuclear Weapons and Popular Culture. To date, she has published an article, a book review, and has presented papers at the Political Studies Association Annual Conference, the Leverhulme Trust-funded Future of Nuclear Disarmament workshop at the University of Glasgow, and The Student Young Pugwash’s Technology and Peace Conference at Leicester University.  E.Faux2@newcastle.ac.uk 

Catherine Eschle is a senior lecturer at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, where she teaches classes on feminism, politics and International Relations and also contributes to the interdisciplinary masters in Applied Gender Studies. Her research focuses on feminism and social movement politics: she is especially interested in the theory and practice of the contemporary feminist movement, on the one hand, and the gender politics and role of feminism in other movements (with a current focus on anti-nuclear organising), on the other.  Her work bridges critical International Relations, political theory, gender studies and sociological social movement studies, and she has published in journals International Studies Quarterly, Security Dialogues, European Journal of Politics and Gender, Social Movement Studies and Political Studies. With Bice Maiguashca, she has written two books and several articles on the global justice movement. In addition, she has published about debates within feminism on identity politics, co-optation and solidarity, and on the relationship between activism, scholarship and teaching. In recent years, her research has coalesced into two main projects. The first explores gender politics and feminist organising in protest camps. Her article ‘Troubling Stories of the End of Occupy: Feminist Narratives of Betrayal at Occupy Glasgow’ (2018) won the 2018-19 Britta Baumgarten memorial prize for the best article published in Social Movement Studies. With Alison Bartlett, Catherine has also co-edited the international collection Feminism and Protest Camps: Entanglements, Critiques and Re-Imaginings, forthcoming with Bristol University Press. The second project seeks to revitalise feminist IR debates on global nuclear politics and its discontents. With Claire Duncanson she has written on the gendered symbolism of British nuclear policy, while with Shine Choi, she has organised a series of online workshops and ongoing network under the rubric of ‘feminist interrogations of global nuclear politics’, which was supported by and International Studies Association research workshop grant in 2020. Catherine and Shine have edited a special section on the same theme with International Affairs, currently in press, for which they have also written the introductory essay. Catherine is active in several international feminist academic networks. A long-term member of the Feminist Theory and Gender Studies section of the International Studies Association, she was on the executive committee 2017-2022, and was programme co-chair for 2020-21. She was also co-editor of the International Feminist journal of Politics 2006-11, with Sandra Whitworth, Rekha Pande and Teresia Teaiwa, and remains a member of the international editorial board. With artist Alice Tatton-Brown, Catherine currently coordinates a British network of feminist academics, artists and activists looking to mark the 40th anniversary of the Embrace the Base action at Greenham Common women’s peace camp in December 2022. catherine.eschle@strath.ac.uk
