GS/SO 250 - Gender and Society in North Africa and Beyond

This course is designed to introduce the students to the problematic questions related to gender and gender issues in North African societies in general, but with a particular focus on the Moroccan context. It exposes students to foundational gender and social concepts, and prepares them to engage in discussions of key debates animating the field.

It asks students to examine diverse topics such as language, culture, education, politics, sexuality, youth, development, globalization and resistance in order to understand the formation of social hierarchies, privilege and gender inequality. We will read texts and articles, watch some videos, visit some women’s associations and discuss how gender, modernization and social change, affect North African societies.
