Hi, guys! Happy Throwback Thursday #5!
Today we’re taking a look at a Haverford course that was funded by the Center in the spring of 2010. The course, called African Masculinities, studied how race, gender, generation, and geography affect representations of and ideas about African masculinity. Topics ranged from the pre-colonial era to the present. Politics and culture were discussed, as well as literature, both from Africa and Europe. The professor, Mellon post-doc fellow, Ruti Talmor, specializes in the anthropology and art of Ghana.
