Gender, Islam, and the West
The Institute of European Studies was awarded a grant from the Social Sciences Research Council to create a public outreach program focused on Gender, Islam and the West during academic year 2008-09. This interdisciplinary program placed academics, public intellectuals, activists, artists, and writers in conversation with an informed public to explore the relationship between Islam and Western secularism, particularly as it manifests itself in the lives of women.
