About this Event

Develop your knowledge of how gender identities and relations play a central role in shaping the social and cultural dynamics of Muslim contexts and how Muslims and Islam are perceived and represented in public discourses in the West. 

Run by leading experts on gender and Islam, the ISMC Summer Programme in Gender in Muslim Contexts will bring together scholars and students from diverse backgrounds to discuss key issues in the study of gender in Muslim contexts. It will provide students with a critical understanding of gender identities and equip them with key tools and approaches in gender studies.
