Femininity, Masculinity, and Sexuality in Morocco and Hollywood: The Negated Sex. A New Publication by Dr. Osire Glacier

Dr. Osire GlacierDr. Osire Glacier, Professor in the Departments of History, Religion, and Politics and International Studies, has recently published a new monographed entitled Femininity, Masculinity, and Sexuality in Morocco and Hollywood: The Negated Sex (Palgrave-Macmillan, 2017). “This book is the first to formulate an ideology of emancipation for women in Morocco. Beginning with constructs of the body, femininity and masculinity, it analyzes the central role played by the sociopolitical writing of sexuality in creating gender hierarchy. Dr. Glacier focuses on Morocco, while drawing parallels with Hollywood cinema, one of the great producers of femininity and masculinity, and conducts an exhaustive examination of constructs of femininity and masculinity in language, social practices, cultural productions and legal texts.” (Palgrave-Macmillan, www.palgrave.com/us/book/9783319532844#aboutAuthors)

This new publication follows a long list of works published by Dr. Glacier on human rights and women’s rights in Morocco, including Les droits humains au Maroc: Entre discours et réalité (2015), Universal Rights, Systemic Violations and Cultural Relativism in Morocco (2013), and Political Women in Morocco: Then and Now (2013), along with several other scholarly contributions on these topics.
