The Middle East Center at UPenn is proud to partner with Penn Museum’s International Classroom Program, The American Research Institute in Turkey (ARIT), and the Center for Civic Leadership and Responsibility (CCLR) in offering a Spring 2012 Lecture series, "Islam: Tradition and Diversity."
This week's talk is presented by Carolyn Baugh, who will discuss Islam and Women. Dr. Baugh received both a Master's degree and a Doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania in Arabic and Islamic Studies. She currently works at Bryn Mawr College where she is research assistant to President McAuliffe, a Qur'anic scholar. Her discussion seeks to add depth to the discourse on Islam and Muslim women by questioning common assumptions while exploring key Qur'anic concepts and Islamic "her-story."
