JWST 56 Women in Islam and Judaism

Focusing on how concepts of women and gender have shaped meanings of religious and national lives and communities within Judaism and Islam in a variety of regions of the world and historical periods, this course will survey variations in gender with attention to historical and cultural specificities.  Using a variety of sources, the course will explore the ways in which Muslim and Jewish women exercise different forms of agency both in opposition to as well as from within socio-religious prescriptions.
