Daily Dialogue: Panel discussion
The Daily Dialogue, hosted by the Iowa State Daily, is a place for conversations you can't always have at the family dinner table. The first event will feature five speakers who each share a story that shaped their personal political awakening.
Gender and Power in Contemporary Somalia
Fartumo Kusow will discuss her most recent novel, Tale of a Boon's Wife, and how her life and experiences as a Somali woman shape her characters and major themes of her work. Kusow draws connections between the main themes of social hierarchy, female relationships, power, and prejudice and present day unconscious biases.
