Work, Social Status, and Gender in Post-Slavery Mauritania
In this book, Katherine Wiley (Anthropology) explores how Haratine (ex-slaves and their descendants) women navigate their positions in Mauritania, given their recent change in status after the legal abolition of slavery in 1981. In this talk, Wiley discusses these issues as well as her methodology and the general research experience. With brief responses by Patrick Moneyang (French) and Ami Shah (Global Studies, Anthropology).
