This interdisciplinary course examines the gender dimension of social contours of Islamic communities in North America, with an emphasis on the U.S. After a brief review of the geopolitics and historical background, immigration trends and acculturation process of communities, the course will explore what it means to be a Muslim person in the U.S. today. Special attention will be paid to social activism and feminist discourse among the diaspora Muslims and their cross-polination or transnational impacts on the processes of globalization, reformation and democratization in the Muslim-majority countries.
