|WGST 231 - Gender&Sexuality inthe MidEast|
The aim of this course is to explore the ways in which the social and cultural construction of sexual difference shapes the politics of gender and sexuality in the Middle East and North Africa. Using interdisciplinary feminist theories, we will explore key issues and debates including the interaction of religion and sexuality, women’s movements, gender-based violence, queerness and gay/straight identities. Looking at the ways in which the Arab Spring galvanized what some have called a “gender revolution”, we will examine women’s roles in the various revolutions across the Arab World, and explore the varied and shifting gender dynamics in the region.
