Knowing Women: Same-Sex Intimacy, Gender, and Identity in Postcolonial Ghana

21 April 2022 | 17:00 - 18:30

This session of Research in Focus series is dedicated to the book Knowing Women, an ethnography on friendship, desire, and same-sex intimacy among urban, working-class women in southern Ghana. The intersectional analysis of their life narratives situates these women in relation to political, economic, and social developments affecting Ghana and other postcolonial and African countries, including anti-gay policies and queer activist movements.
