Description - African Gender Studies by Oyeronke Oyewumi

This reader seeks to bring African experiences to bear on the ongoing global discussions of women, gender and society. Courses on gender and Africa have become a staple in many departments including History, Sociology, Anthropology, Africana Studies and Women's Studies. A good body of research and writing has been carried out in this field in the last decade or two. However, there is no reader available for use in these courses. African Gender Studies brings together the essential writing on the topic from the last 25 years, with a focus on theoretical and conceptual writings.
