Gender & Class in Middle East

Gender and Class in the Contemporary Middle East
During the past decades scholars have devoted considerable attention to the subject of gender in the Middle East. Much of this work, however, has focused on the situation of women of lower socio-economic classes. This course will offer a comparative perspective on gender and class in the Middle East, including work on the construction of masculinities and the situation of both men and women from lower, middle, and upper economic classes. 3 hrs. lect./disc.
