In August 2010, NYU hosted a three-day workshop that introduced educators to the complexity and diversity of daily life for women living across the Middle East and North Africa. By closely examining the lives of individual women (through memoir, film, short stories, and more), they learned surprising details about childhood, marriage, sexuality, politics, and the diverse life experiences of Muslim women. A specialist on feminist movements in Morocco, Nadia Guessous (PhD Anthropology, Columbia University), led the course. At NYU she teaches graduate courses on the Anthropology of Gender, Sexuality and Islam in the Middle East and North Africa. The course featured a variety of primary and secondary sources; they are listed below along with information about how to obtain them.
