Women in Islam and Confucianism

Yi Sun, Bahar Davary

Using an interdisciplinary approach, this course examines the historical and contemporary experiences of women in Islam and Confucianism from the perspectives of History and Religious Studies.  With a focus on the lives of Iranian women and Chinese women while also providing much broader coverage, the course is designed to dissect the intricate connections between the two pervasive religions and women’s experiences in Islamic and Confucian societies. Students will be expected to develop critical appreciation of women’s dynamic role in shaping the historical contours of Islam and Confucianism as well as in changing their own lives.
