When Women Wear Slacks: Gender, Sexuality and Embodied Nationalism in Cameroon

Africa at Noon features Jacqueline-Bethel Mougoué, Assistant Professor of History at Baylor University. She is an interdisciplinary feminist scholar of Africa who is particularly interested in how constructions of gender inform the comportment and performances of the body, religious beliefs, and political ideologies in Cameroon. Her first book, Gender, Separatist Politics and Embodied Nationalism in Cameroon, is forthcoming with the University of Michigan Press this year (2019).

This talk will include a half hour question and answer session for African Cultural Studies faculty and graduate students at its conclusion.
