veiled-professional-womanSPECIAL TOPIC COURSE FOR SPRING 2015: FEMINISM AND ISLAM
Instructor: Esra Ozcan

In this course we will investigate feminism and Islam in global as well as in diverse local contexts, exploring the ways in which feminism has been interpreted, appropriated, utilized, challenged or simply rejected by women in various Muslim countries. We will investigate how the histories of colonialism, westernization, modernization, secularism and economic liberalism have shaped women’s movements in Muslim countries, and how the multilayered questions brought by these sweeping processes continue to unite or divide women and men equally. We will also focus on how women’s bodies have become a major site for the controversies over westernization, anti-westernization, commercialism, tradition and modernity.
