Three students and faculty to present research in Morocco

Three philosophy and liberal arts majors will present research this week at the 35th Annual Global South Studies (AGSS) conference in Marrakech, Morocco.

Two students are seniors who will miss their graduation ceremony Dec. 16 – liberal studies major Breanna Harkins and Kelley Quinn, who is dual majoring in liberal studies and English. Sophomore Brooke Judie, a liberal studies and philosophy major, will also attend.

Harkins, Quinn and Judie worked on their research papers throughout fall semester, as part of a Special Topics course supervised by Dr. Sunita Manian. Topics are Harkins’ “Sex Work and Empowerment: A Global Perspective;” Judie’s “Creating the Black Beast: Constructions of Black Masculinity in South Africa and the U.S.;” and Quinn’s “Revealing Islamophobia: Western Feminism and the Discourse on the Veil.”

Student participation is being supported by funding from MURACE, the department of philosophy and liberal studies, the Women’s Center and Office of Inclusive Excellence. Quinn also received funding from the department of English and rhetoric.

More than 100 participants from around the world will attend the international conference, which is being organized by Manian as AGSS President-elect. The conference is co-hosted by Georgia College, the GC College of Arts and Sciences and Université Hassan II de Casablanca.

Several faculty will also attend the conference, including Dr. Larbi Oukada, who generously helped with many logistical aspects. Dr. Juli Gittinger will present on the topic of “Techno-Orientalism: Representations of South Asia on the Web;” Dr. James Winchester on “Visions of Pleasure and the Good Life from Across the Global South;” and Manian on “I Resent Society’s Irrational Fear of Sex: Perspectives on Sexuality Among Youth in India.”
