Transformations dans le genre en péninsule Arabique

Abstract : Gender Transformations in the Arabian Peninsula - At a time when studies on gender have grown and are now more widespread, a small group of researchers around CEFAS and its director, Michel Tuchscherer, thought it would be useful to assess the state of the art and ongoing studies about gender in the Arabian Peninsula and the Horn of Africa. Indeed, French research about gender transformation in this part of the world is scarce and what research there is at an international level is scattered. The same could be said of the different mages of women in that region: either those, relayed by the media in Europe and America, of oppressed women (in particular by the veil and early marriage), or those that make the covers of magazines by showing off their emancipation in stark contrast with common sense expectations —luxury cars, businesses, sun glasses, travels abroad…— or, more recently, those of women shown veiled but demonstrating in the Arab streets.
