IGS 732 - Arab and Islamic Feminisms
This seminar examines the nature, development, and articulation of Arab and Islamic feminisms and the debates around them, in addition to variations in feminist movements in the Middle East and North African countries, with an emphasis on the last 100 years. It analyzes the intellectual work of prominent Arab/Muslim feminists, and includes an examination of Islamic feminist thought and its relation to Islamic jurisprudence, with a critical evaluation of how interpretations of the Quran and Sunnah (Prophetic Hadith/Sayings) have shaped and continue to affect the lives of women in the Arab/Muslim world.
