   schema:description "From an ethnological standpoint, this study contends that the construction and implementation of a gender-based literacy program that empowers adult education learners in rural or semi-rural (hybrid) areas in Algeria must consider the context of the Arabic-Islamic tradition. In her research Anne Laaredj-Campbell examines the educational situation of women in the Haut Plateau by using methods derived from the field of ethnology. The author endeavors to take a look at the literacy practices and their theoretical implications for empowering women in Algeria. To date, there are no empirical studies on adult female literacy in Algeria that focus on the cultural construction of gender and empowerment. A gender approach to education is committed to establishing reasons for the deficiencies of literacy among women. Contents Theoretical and conceptual overview of literacy Women's status in literacy and education Understanding the process of empowerment for rural women Empirical case studies of the Iqraa functional literacy program and Ibn Khaldun University survey in Tiaret, Algeria Target Groups Lecturers and students of philosophy and cultural anthropology specializing in gender and women's studies Readers who are interested in literacy and empowerment, gender and women studies, cultural anthropology The Author Anne Laaredj-Campbell received her doctorate degree in cultural anthropology from the Albert-Ludwigs' Universitat, Freiburg i.
