Many scholars within a variety of disciplines have begun to examine ways in which new media technologies in the Muslim world have helped amplify discussions and debates about the role and meaning of Islam in everyday life. Led by Ousseina Alidou, faculty member in the department of African, Middle Eastern, and South Asian languages and literatures at Rutgers University, this panel considers how women in different Muslim contexts, who may or may not identify with feminism, are engaging media to explore different understandings of Islam in relation to their gendered lives and experiences.
