Gender Studies Workshop

Home >> Gender Studies Workshop
Each year the MAMES program assembles a workshop on a topic not covered in our regular classes. The MAMES Workshop is a discussion group whose direction and focus of study will be determined largely by the students. At the end of the summer, participants will be invited to submit papers (1000-1500 workds) for publication in Rihla, the MAMES journal. 

This year, the topic of the workshop is The History of Sexuality and Gender in the Middle East.
