MSU Muslism Studies Program welcomes guest speaker Dr. Zahra Ayubi, Assistant Professor of Religion at Dartmouth Universtiy, for a virtual discussion. 

Islamic scriptural sources offer potentially radical notions of equality. Yet medieval Islamic philosophers chose to establish a hierarchical, male-centered virtue ethics. In Gendered Morality, Zahra Ayubi rethinks the tradition of Islamic philosophical ethics from a feminist critical perspective. She calls for a philosophical turn in the study of gender in Islam based on resources for gender equality that are unlocked by feminist engagement with the Islamic ethical tradition. Gendered Morality offers a vital and disruptive new perspective on patriarchal Islamic ethics and metaphysics, showing the ways in which the philosophical tradition can support the aims of gender justice and human flourishing.

Organized by the Muslim Studies Program and cosponsored by the Asian Studies Center, Center for Gender in Global Context, Department of Religious Studies, and James Madison College
