Islamic Feminisms | Alternative Life-worlds | Decoloniality

Taught an online class to University of Rochester students on ‘Islamic Feminisms | Alternative Life-worlds | Decoloniality’ for a course on the History of Feminisms.

My presentation had some kick-ass ideas (articulated by kick-ass women like Alia Al-Saji, Saba Mahmood, and Francoise Verges). It contained stunning artwork created by POCs and video clips that sparked an interesting and prolonged discussion.
