Reformist Muslim Women Leaders in Kenya

kenya
28 March
4pm – 6pm
Boston University
GSU Women’s Resource Center
Rutgers University Professor and Author Ousseina Alidou’s current study explores the ways in which reformist Muslim women leaders engaged in the public negotiation of gender relations and other key issues in the early 21st century. It examines their agency and leadership achievements as transformative social change agents in critical social sectors (e.g., education, health, media, law and politics). This work analyzes their responses to the broad processes that globalization has brought to the local arena in Kenya, such as democratization, neo-liberalism, and globally-circulating ideologies (e.g., Islamism, human rights, gender equality).
Sponsored by the Boston University Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies and African American Studies Programs.

Three Perspectives on Technology and Childbirth in America

August 24, 2009

The Women’s Studies Program and the  Faculty Network on Women’s Studies, Gender, and Sexuality sponsored:

Three Perspectives on Technology and Childbirth in America

Childbirth is the most common reason for hospitalization in the United States, and cesarean section is the most common form of major surgery.  Yet childbirth also has significance for women’s sense of identity and our understanding of the meaning of family.  This panel will offer a historical overview of the economic implications of technologically assisted birth, a discourse analysis of women’s birth narratives, and a public health perspective on birth practices and outcomes.

Panelists:

Claudia Olivetti, Economics, BU
Christina Michaud, Writing Program, BU
Eugene Declercq,  Asst Dean For Doctoral Education, School of  Public Health, BU
