General Conference Information:
The status of women in the Middle East remains a subject that engages scholars and activists across academic disciplines. Understanding the female experience requires an ongoing investigation that highlights past and present events and conditions in this region. This multidisciplinary conference addresses the issue of gender equity in the Middle East through a number of exploratory themes. Researchers and activists from a variety of academic fields will share their approaches and insights into how they interpret gender equity, how women face barriers, overcome limitations, form identities, and shape their multiple roles through careers, family and religious life.
Conference themes relating to gender equity include, but are not limited to:
Art, Music and Literature
Education and Curricula
Female Body Image
Femininity and Masculinity
Local and Global Economies
Marriage and Family
Religion and Gender Roles
Technology and Innovation
