Arabic for Gender: Practical Views on Gendered Language in Human Rights, Education, and Policy Contexts

The Governance Programme at the Aga Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations in London is organising the workshop "Arabic for Gender: Practical Views on Gendered Language in Human Rights, Education, and Policy Contexts" which will be held on 13 December 2019 at the Aga Khan Centre.

From 10am to 5pm the Governance Programme will be hosting an intersectorial workshop looking at gender in translation, with seven presentations and two group activities. The presenters will be: Nadine El-Nabli, Riham Debian, Roula Seghaier, Maria Rosa Garrido Sardà, Leïla Kherbiche, Lara Antonios, and Tory Brykalski. The group activities will be facilitated by Wine Tesseur and Sanaa Alimia. The workshop will result in a working paper with reflections on, and suggestions for, best practices for the Arabic translation of policy texts with gendered inflections. Any specialist who would like to participate in the workshop can email ismc.governance@aku.edu with an expression of interest.
