Abstract: Informed by the classic work of Cynthia Enloe (1990) this roundtable focuses on how the ‘personal is international’. This question challenges assumptions of where the international occurs and undermines traditional assumptions of what constitutes the purview of International Relations. We also focus on the Canadian context and thus challenge disciplinary divides between the domestic and the international which are often methodological straightjackets that limit our ability to see gender in ways that cross traditional subfields. If we are to be ‘curious feminists’ (Enloe 2004), our curiosity about the intersection of the international and the domestic can begin at home. Each member of the roundtable will reflect on the following set of questions. What does gender and IR in everyday spaces and places mean to you?” What does it look like? Is it just gender or do we need an intersectional approach? How does the concept of ‘the everyday’ fit with an International Relations approach? Why should I care about gender and international relations in everyday spaces and places? Ultimately, the roundtable will show the ongoing relevance of a phrase as seemly straightforward as ‘the personal is the international’. When we see the international in our everyday, in the simple and sometimes overlooked, we see the way the international and gender is performed and practiced and thus revealed in places about which we are too often uncurious. To expose the everyday to scrutiny means we can see the varied sites of gender that merit attention and often disruption.
