Barbara Anderson, Lecturer in African, African American, and Diaspora Studies; Associate Director, African Studies Center

This talk addresses the challenges and promises for girls’ and women’s education in Africa, exploring the ways that European colonialism, missionary work, and contemporary neocolonial economic policies shape African educational opportunities and experiences. It also provides some interesting comparisons in female education between the developed and developing world.
