‘Trending Globally’ podcast with Brown alumna Shenila Khoja-Moolji on Girls' Education in South Asia

January 9, 2019

Sarah Baldwin talks with Shenila Khoja-Moolji, professor of gender studies at Bowdoin College, about questions regarding girls' education that are often overlooked: which girls do we choose to teach? What sort of subjects should they learn? What do governments and NGOs hope for when investing in girls education? These and other questions are addressed in Professor Khoja-Moolji’s book ‘Forging the Ideal Educated Girl: The Production of Desirable Subjects In Muslim South Asia,’ as well as in her recent Islam and the Humanities lecture.
