Item description for Pioneering Feminist Anthropology in Egypt: Selected Writings from Cynthia Nelson (Cairo Papers in Social Science) by Martina Rieker...
Cynthia Nelson was an outstanding professor of anthropology at AUC and the founding director of the Institute of Gender and Women's Studies. This collection of her essays, which highlight her distinguished scholarly career, is grouped under three main themes: phenomenology and the meaning of religious phenomena in Egypt; women, power, and politics in the Middle East; and the politics and ethics of location. Cynthia Nelson was the editor of the first Cairo Papers monograph in 1977: thirty years later, this issue marks her legacy to the humanistic and social scientific understanding of Egypt, a legacy balanced by the enormous institutional contributions she made to establishing feminist anthropology in Egypt.
