|Spring semester is coming. What does your schedule look like?|
Course: Gender and Power in Transnational Perspective (Barnard)
Professor: Lila Abu-Lughod
Time: M 2:10-4:00PM
Prerequisites: Critical Approaches or permission of the instructor.
Although I was skeptical of this class at first, I have really grown to love it because it brings in the intersectionality that is lacking in many classes on gender. The course is different each semester, with this semester focusing on the Middle East and the role that gender plays in the so-called “Muslim question”. Yet, the professor who is teaching it next semester (Lila Abu-Lughod) has written many books on the topic of women and gender in cultures outside of the United States so it is sure to be an interesting class and one that will make you re-think many of your previously held assumptions about women, especially those living in third-world countries.
