Profile Information

My personal story:
I am currently Associate Professor of Global Studies at California State University, Monterey Ba. I have lived and worked in Southeast Asia for over twenty years and supervised education for Southeast Asian refugees in the US and Asia for 15 years. My area expertise includes global gender issues, particularly feminism and militarism, religious social ethics, and religion, violence, and peacemaking. My work focuses on progressive religious citizenship in Southeast Asia, particularly in areas of complex conflict and peacemaking. I have written on the Dhammayietra, the annual peace walk in Cambodia as transnational example of engaged Buddhism. More recently, I am focused on Filipino feminist theologians’ frameworks for “just peace” for both Communist and Muslim insurgencies in light of the US war on terrorism.
Why I want peace:
Who doesn't want peace, but a just peace, with equitable distribution of wealth, in a community of nations responsible to their citizens' well-being. I am a US citizen whose taxes go to too much military build up and whose bases spans the globe, often at the interests of corporations seeking security for cheap production. It is our prime responsibility to work for human security instead of national security.
Interests and activities:
Iranian film
theater (my partner is a director)
beach combing for stones, glass, shells
Faculty, Applied Conflict Transformation Studies MA, Phnom Penh Cambodia (part of the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies)

Working Committee of the People’s Forum on Peace for Life, a Global South-based interfaith initiative resisting militarized globalization and creating life-enhancing alternatives.

Has led delegations investigating the intersection of religion and politics to Cambodia/Vietnam, to China for the NGO Forum of the 4th U.N. Conference on Women, and to the Philippines.
