DAAS Africa Workshop “Get Along without It”: Contested Domestic Desires in Imperial Sudan
Marie Grace Brown (B.A., Bryn Mawr College; Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania) is an Associate Professor of Middle East History at the University of Kansas. Her award-winning first book, Khartoum at Night: Fashion and Body Politics in Imperial Sudan (Stanford University Press, 2017), argues that Sudanese women used fashion and their bodies to mark and make meaning of the shifting sociopolitical systems of imperial rule. Before her career in academia, Brown worked at a nonprofit providing legal assistance to immigrant women fleeing gender-based violence. Her research has been supported by grants and fellowships from the American Association of University Women, the Social Science Research Council, and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
