Cult-A: Islam, Women's Rights and Feminism(Asma Barlas, Ithaca College)
This Seminar is available to all students. No background required.
In this seminar, we will focus on recent debates on whether Muslim women can claim the right to equality from within an Islamic framework and what it means to speak of feminism in Islam. The readings will focus on a Roundtable on "Islam and Feminism: The Boundaries of Critique" published in the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion (Fall, 2016).
