HIST 251 Muslim Girls (Run the World): Gender and Popular Culture from Prophetic Tradition to Arab Futurism

This interdisciplinary course takes up topics that are vital for students on college campuses today, including Islam, Islamaphobia, gender, youth, and popular culture. Taking an innovative approach that offers both a long view of Muslimah popular culture from the advent of Islam and a global perspective on the various iterations of gender and sexuality among Muslim communities, this course helps students unlearn common misconceptions and increase tolerance while honing skills in two important disciplines and learning how they speak to each other.
