Summer Programme - Gender in Muslim Contexts
Held at Venice International University
July 6-14, 2020
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 Summer Programme: 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.
Designed in collaboration between the Agha Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilizations, Simon Fraser University, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and Venice International University, the Summer Programme: Gender in Muslim Contexts makes full use of the unique campus of the Venice International University, located in the beautiful island of San Servolo, Venice. The nine-day programme will use interdisciplinary materials and follow a blended format combining academic lectures with a range of activities, such as workshops and film screenings. The programme also includes a one-day excursion in Venice, with highlights on Islamic heritage and women’s history.
