Women, Islam and Modernity
This course will explore the position of women and gender relations in contemporary Muslim societies and North American Muslim communities, introducing a comparative perspective to the issues of Muslim women in their homelands and diaspora. Our discussions will focus on comparing different controversial issues within Islam, such as Muslim women's identity, veiling, Muslim family life, Muslim women in the war zones, and Muslim women's activism in their homeland and in the United States and Canada.
