Drisha Offers Class on Clothing and Gender Construction in Halacha
Drisha Institute in New York City is offering a weekly co-ed class this summer that is open to the public and may be of interest to our readers who are interested in issues of gender, clothing and sexuality. Chasiah Haberman will be teaching “Pink Shirts and Pinstripe Trousers: Clothing and Gender Construction Halakha.” Here is the class description from Drisha’s site:
Pink Shirts and Pinstripe Trousers: Clothing and Gender Construction Halakha
What do women wear? What constitutes a uniquely male garment? Is modesty a gender-specific concept? How do assumptions about gender shape ideas of appropriate dress for men and women? We will study both traditional and contemporary halakhic literature.
Tuesday, 7:45 – 9:15 p.m.
Financial assistance is available. Space is still available. This class is co-ed.
Register soon, as the class starts on July 1st!
