Meet the Author and Virtual Book Launch via Zoom (Registration)

Wednesday, November 17

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Manhattanville College and Dobbs Ferry Public Library will present a virtual visit with Manhattanville professor Nayma Qayum on Zoom, author of “Village Ties: Women, NGOs, and Informal Institutions in Rural Bangladesh.”

Bangladesh is a country that has risen from the ashes of war, natural disaster, and decades of resource drain to become a development miracle. This book argues that grassroots women’s mobilization programs can empower women to challenge informal institutions when such programs are anti-oppression, deliberative, and embedded in their communities. Nayma Qayum is an associate professor of Asian studies and global and international studies at Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York.
