Beyond "the Veil": Representations and Realities of Muslim Women in the U.S.
FGSS 301
Fall 2014
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CSPL 301

Led by playwright and actress Leila Buck, this course will use artistic methods to research and examine the dominant representations of Muslim women in U.S. mainstream media, and engage with the complex realities of Muslim women's lives through personal narratives and in-person connections. The course will include a service-learning component where students will connect with Muslim women in Connecticut and beyond, while exploring the politics of representation and the role of story in shaping our perceptions of and relationships to Muslim women in the U.S. and beyond. This course is part of the Center for the Arts' Muslim Women's Voices at Wesleyan program and the Creative Campus Initiative.
