Gender, Education, and International Development Class Hosts WMST Brown Bag

By Larissa Grijalva '17 on November 20, 2015

Professor Rios’s Gender, Education, & International Development class (EDUC 303) hosted a Women’s Studies Brown Bag presenting their academic posters and projects.

Focusing on discourses of “development,” most of these posters inverted contemporary images and ideas to expose how power and American geopolitics play into ideas about education (especially for women and girls) in “developing” countries/economies. The posters ranged between various topics such as “voluntourism”, good intentions, and the push for gender equality in developing countries.
