…Inventing Women and Subverting Gender in the African Public Sphere

Led by: Dr. Georgette Ledgister

Six-Week Elective Course  |  Thursdays, April 4-May 9, 2024  |  6-8 p.m. Eastern Time

This course explores themes at the intersection of gender and religion in Africa, and interrogating normative discourses that almost exclusively paint African women as victims constrained by western conceptions of gender. Focusing on the interplay of gender studies, religious studies, and womanist ethics, this course locates agency in the lived experience of ordinary African women who turn to indigenous practice to cultivate flourishing in the public sphere.
