Description

Definition of gender roles in the medieval Islamicate world was, at times, complex and subtle; relating more to social status, dress and performance than biological sex or sexual preference. This panel will focus on questions related to gender in literature, religious texts, and the intersection of culture and science in the Islamicate world between the 7th and 15th centuries.
