Disrupting Assumptions: Veil, Divorce, and Women’s Agency in Islam

Join us for lunch and a discussion of the dynamics of women’s agency in Islam and the law through a critical examination of contemporary controversies around the veil and women’s personal status in several Muslim contexts, including Turkey and Malaysia. Diane L. Moore, Founding Director of the Religious Literacy Project at the Harvard Divinity School, will lead the discussion and introduce the newly-launched Religion, Conflict, and Peace Initiative and upcoming J-term travel opportunities.

Lunch will be served.
