Class Details

This course explores the constructions of feminine and masculine categories in modern Africa. We will concentrate on the particular history of women’s experiences during the colonial and postcolonial periods. In addition, we will examine how the study of history and gender offers perspectives on contemporary women’s issues such as female-circumcision, teen pregnancy, wife-beating, and “AIDS.”
