I am so delighted that this blog will remain open all year around! I an extremely honored to have had the opportunity to join with a wonderful, diverse and intelligent group of individuals, in celebrating Ramadan this year. I hope to continue engaging with all of you in discussions about Islam and cultural diversity.
I would love to see this blog contribute to the discussion of a new, more equitable, analysis of Islam throughout the world, and establish a more productive and constructive lens through which to approach Islam and Muslim cultures - as opposed to the ahistorical and fossilized conceptions of Islam that is often articulated through the Western lens.
I am particularly interested in new themes arising with an eye to Islamic Feminism, as well as cross-cultural and interfaith feminist dialogue.
