Gender and Literature: Interpretation of Anthropological Concepts and Definitions about the Female Gender, Dowry and Family Relationships

The students of A2 class collaborated in the Modern Greek Literature subject under the guidance of their teacher Mrs. Karimali for the study and creation of a presentation entitled “Gender and Literature: Interpretation of Anthropological Concepts and Definitions about the Female Gender, Dowry and Family Relationships”.

The present project aimed at the familiarization of the students with a corpus of anthropological concepts and definitions about the female gender, the gender relations, the ethnographic varieties of family structures (in-law  types of relationship, role distribution in the traditional and modern society, etc.) and institutions related to them (dowry), with the use of anthropological and sociological interpretation tools (comparative method, deconstruction, interpretation etc.) and examples from ethnographic societies (New Guinea, Africa).
