Essay on Women and Higher Education Submitted

CGDS is pleased to announce that Dr. Choman Hardi, Director of CGDS, and Dr. Lynn Rose, Deputy Director, have submitted their co-authored paper for publication. “‘With Education You Can Face Every Struggle’: Gender and Higher Education in Iraq/Kurdistan” is based on over 70 oral history interviews of Kurdish and Arab women with and without higher education in Iraq, as well as interviews with faculty and administrators working with gender curricula in Kurdistan universities. AUIS students, who are credited in the publication, conducted many of the interviews. This project reflects the aim of CGDS to combine teaching, research, and community involvement in an intersectional approach to gender equity. The article is forthcoming in Education as Gender Policy: Gender Studies, Women's Empowerment and Economic Development in Post-Conflict Asia and the Middle East, ed. Bahar Jalali (Lexington Books).
