Krista Hunt is Adjunct Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto, Canada.
Krista Hunt coined the term of "embedded feminism". In the same way that the US military employed an embedded media to be deployed with US troops to present a positive message to the listening audience back in the US, so too did they employ an embedded feminism to give this act of imperialism a positive meaning.
Dr. Krista Hunt is also "Postdoctoral Research Fellow" of the "International Secretariat for Human Development":
- Krista's teaching and research interests include gender and violence, transnational feminist organizing, post-war on terror reconstruction and development, and the antifeminist politics of contemporary imperialism. She is completing a co-edited volume with Kim Rygiel, entitled (En)Gendering the War on Terror: War Stories and Camouflaged Politics (London: Ashgate, forthcoming Spring 2006).
