About Jo Butterfield

I am part of the University of Iowa Center for Human Rights New Books Network team. I am the Academic Advisor and an instructor for the Center's Human Rights Certificate. I am also an adjunct asst. professor in the Department of History where I teach courses on the History of Human Rights; the World since 1945; US in World Affairs; and Diversity and Inclusion: Cold War America. I am interested in the history of human rights and U.S. foreign policy and activism in global context. My own research focuses on how ideas about gender and feminist activism shape modern human rights.
