Lesley Pruitt Wolf

 

Dr Lesley Pruitt joined the School of Social & Political Sciences (SSPS) at the University of Melbourne in 2020. A Truman Scholar and Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar, Lesley completed her Bachelor of Arts (Political Science) degree at Arkansas State University and her Master of International Studies (Peace & Conflict Resolution) & PhD (Politics & International Studies) degrees at the University of Queensland.

Following her earlier time at the University of Melbourne, where she was previously as McKenzie Research Fellow from 2012-2014, Lesley returned to SSPS following appointments at RMIT University and Monash University. Lesley’s research focuses on recognising and enhancing young people’s participation in peacebuilding and advancing gender equity in efforts aimed at pursuing peace and security. In particular, she has long been interested in the ways young people participate in politics, peacebuilding, leadership, and development, including work with creative programs using activities such as music, dance, theatre, and filmmaking to bring young people together in advocating for social change. She has worked on related projects with a number of community based organisations and NGOs, such as the World YWCA, PLAN International, and International Women’s Development Agency.
