*DIGITAL* Thinking Race, Religion, and Gender: Muslim Women and Islamophobia
January 5, 2022
As “critical race theory” and “intersectionality” move out of academia and into public conversation, what do these theories tell us about actual people? UVM professor Ilyse Morgenstein Fuerst examines how race, religion, and gender affect the lives of Black Muslim women in the US. Exploring this diverse community helps illuminate how intersectionality functions, but also how one’s identity shapes religious practice and the experience of discrimination.
