| Open Player in New Window

The University of Oregon’s Comparative Literature program celebrates its 50th anniversary this fall, kicking off with a keynote lecture by Saba Mahmood, a professor of sociocultural anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley.

Mahmood’s lecture explores the stakes of educating oneself in a time of global and intercultural conflict. She is author of “The Politics of Piety: The Islamic Revival and the Feminist Subject” (2005). Her work focuses on the interplay between religious and secular politics in postcolonial societies with special attention to issues of embodiment, law, cultural hermeneutics and gender/sexuality.
