International Women's Day: Muslim Women on Campus

The International Women’s Day Lecture 2021 hosted by University College Cork's Study of Religions Department in conjunction with UCC Women's Studies present Professor Shabana Mir, American Islamic College, USA who explores religions and anthropology through her study on Muslim Women on Campus.

Shabana Mir's powerful ethnographic study of women on Washington, D.C., college campuses reveals that being a young female Muslim in post-9/11 America means experiencing double scrutiny—scrutiny from the Muslim community as well as from the dominant non-Muslim community. Muslim American Women on Campus illuminates the processes by which a group of ethnically diverse American college women, all identifying as Muslim and all raised in the United States, construct their identities during one of the most formative times in their lives.

Mir, an anthropologist of education, focuses on key leisure practices--drinking, dating, and fashion--to probe how Muslim American students adapt to campus life and build social networks that are seamlessly American, Muslim, and youthful.
