The Crisis of Islamic Masculinities

 

9781472587145PSA from Miriam Kudler-Flam ’16:

Professor Amanullah De Sondy of University of Miami will give a fascinating lecture on the topic of his new book:

Rigid notions of masculinity are causing crisis in the global Islamic community. These are articulated from the Qur’an, its commentary, historical precedents and societal, religious and familial obligations. This lecture will interrogate this global gender and sexual crisis as we attempt to understand Islam and Muslims in the world today.

Reception to follow immediately after the lecture.

This event is sponsored by the Religion Department and co-sponsored by
Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; The Center for the Study of
Public Life; and the Certificate in Social, Cultural, and Critical
Theory.
