I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My areas of research and teaching are Islam and gender, women in Muslim history, classical and modern Islamic ethics, Islam in American religious history, and gender/feminist theory.
Currently, I am teaching in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at Dartmouth College and finishing work on my doctoral dissertation titled, “Gendered Morality: Marriage, Masculinity, and Social Relations in Medieval Islamic Ethics.” I am also serving as managing editor at Azizah Magazine, a quarterly intellectual lifestyle magazine for and by American Muslim women.
I earned my MA in Religious Studies with a concentration on Islam in American religious history also at UNC Chapel Hill and my BA with highest honors in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies at Brandeis University.
