What do we know about women and gender in the Arab region? What do we need to know? How do we train young scholars to provide the knowledge that is needed to more productively understand the past and think about the future of this region of the world?
Mapping the Production of Knowledge on Women and Gender in the Arab Region (MPK) will present preliminary results from its project to map scholarship from 1970 to the present, under the thematic of socialities. The purpose of MPK is to first identify then to critically review all the work that has been published on women and gender, including what topics were researched, who carried out the research, on what countries, using what theories and methods, published in what languages, and what findings. MPK is a project of the University of California Davis Arab Region Consortium (UCDAR), in partnership with the Arab Council for the Social Sciences, (ACSS) funded by the Open Society Foundation, Amman and supported by the Ford Foundation.
