Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm

Join us as Ali Howell share with us information she has gained through in-depth interviews with first-generation Iranian immigrant women living in the U.S. , who self-identify as Muslim.  Her presentation will explore some of the emergent themes growing out of her dissertation research, focusing specifically on the question of choice and veiling.  Real women’s voices help explain the beautifully nuanced meaning of being a female Iranian-Muslim in a Western society.  


Ali Howell is a Lecturer in the Fashion Studies Department.
