Masculinities in Movement - the Case of Post-Colonial Algeria

You are invited to the Study of Religions seminar: 

Dr. Melyssa Haffaf, Program Director and Adjunct Professor
Gender Justice Initiative at Georgetown University, USA


Masculinities in Movement -
the Case of Post-Colonial Algeria


Dr. Melyssa Haffaf will examine representations and discourse on masculinity in post-colonial Algeria. By considering the intersections between nation formation and gender, she interrogates how the French colonial experience and revolution for independence impacted youth aspirations and particularly those of young men. Through the exploration of mediums such as film and literature, Dr. Haffaf shines light on resistance and subversive possibilities while unveiling the chiasm existing between expressions of masculinity and hegemonic discourse.
