Fatoumata Seck: "Gender, Economy, and the Social Imaginary in Senegalese Popular Culture "

 In Senegal, structural adjustment policies altered power relations between the sexes. Waves of layoffs, salary decreases, rising prices, and the devaluation of the CFA franc, among other factors, had a significant impact on households. Professor Seck will explore the fictionalization of gender relations within a complex and dynamic context in which spousal relations were constantly being redefined as a result of the economic reforms, as well as various other factors that came before them.

Fatoumata Seck is Assistant Professor, French and Italian
