Thowback Thursday 5

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.
