Muslim Women – Drawing From the Past to Move Forward in the Future


From Andrew Chatfield:

Dr. Feryal Salem will talk about the need for the female voice in Islamic scholarship and give an outline of some contemporary Muslim women’s contributions to classical Islamic scholarship. She will look at how the existence of women’s voices has reframed traditional texts and their presentation. Dr. Salem is an Assistant Professor of Islamic Scriptures and Law; Co-Director of the Islamic Chaplaincy Program; and Director of the Imam and Muslim Community Leadership Program at the Hartford Seminary. This event is part of “Muslim Women’s Voices at Wesleyan.” Co-sponsored by Wesleyan’s Office of Religious and Spiritual Life and Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life.
