Farha Ternikar, Ph.D., of the Department of Anthropology, Criminology and Sociology recently delivered an online talk at the University of Vermont titled Muslim American Women, Indian Asian Girls and Representation as part of the university’s Distinguished Speaker Series. Participants were invited to: examine how social media and popular culture can be important ways to study Muslim American women; explore the theory of intersectionality as it is a useful theoretical lens to study Muslim South Asian American women; and discover why religion, in addition to race, class and gender is an important lens for understanding American Muslim women's lives today.
