The course is though short but fulfils a long-due need of an academic and systematic study of Islam and feminism on the status and role of woman in family and in society. This course is two-folded — because it covers the coining of the term feminism, protofeminism and Liberal feminism from classical to contemporary times; and at the same time, it presents a holistic Islamic portrayal on woman in family and society. The course also clarifies many misconceptions that surrounded the Islamic stance on woman. The course strikes off many of the patriarchal and misogynistic images that are presented on the Islamic position of woman. The course has addressed two most controversial issues of the contemporary times — (1) non-conventional sexual identities – LGBTQI and the Islamic position on them; and (2) the so-called Islamic feminism which claims that it is a feminist discourse within Islam to liberate, develop and empower women. The course has critically explored the main arguments of Islamic feminists and showed that there is hardly any Islam left in the so-called Islamic feminism and so it is mainly promoting feminist agenda of Western cultural imperialism.


What Will You Learn:

Students would get a critical insight into feminism on one side and would also get a comprehensive and holistic position of Islam on the status and role of woman in family and society on the other side. Since this course is designed and approached from holistic Islamic perspective, students would also understand the close relationship between feminism and Western civilization and the intimate ideological connection between Islamic civilization and the Islamic position on woman. This course would also help the students to build a proper critical framework to analyse any subject/topic under study before accepting the given subject/topic at prima facie.


Who is this course for?

Everyone is welcome to join.


Entry Requirements:

Students would be expected to have some understanding of Islam and feminism and the contemporary issues related to woman.
