The research work of the Gender Institute is critical, transnational, and interdisciplinary. Our research is variously positioned in relation to different fields of study within the social sciences and humanities, but in each case, the focus on gender means testing conventional disciplinary boundaries and developing alternative methodologies. All the research addresses, in some way, the tenacity of gender power relations and gendered inequalities in a period of global transformation. Our research falls under four broad strands, and we work both independently and collaboratively within and across these themes:
Bodies and sexualities: Research in this field includes analysis of the body as property, and body as commodity, and what, if anything, makes the body special. It also addresses the relationship between gender and sexuality, with an emphasis on local and transnational spaces and flows.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Yemen’s army and popular forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait on Friday, the eighth Saudi vessel sinking in waters offshore Yemen in the last three months.
The Saudi warship was targeted with Yemeni missiles in the Al-Mukha coastal waters in the province of Ta’iz today.
The sunken ship had repeatedly fired rockets at residential areas in Ta’iz province, inflicting casualties and destruction there.
This is the eighth time that a Saudi warship is sent deep into the waters of Bab al-Mandab Strait by the Yemeni forces.
Other Saudi battleships that were approaching Yemen’s coasts retreated fast following the attack.
The coast of Al-Mukha is located in Bab al-Mandab strait and the Saudi-led forces have been trying hard for several months now to win control over the coastal regions near the waterway.
On December 5, the Yemeni forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait.
