Not Too "College-Like," Not Too Normal: American Muslim Undergraduate Women's Gendered Discourses
Mir, Shabana
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v40 n3 p237-256 Sep 2009
Building on an ethnographic study of American Muslim undergraduate women at two universities in Washington, D.C., I examine undergraduate Muslim women's construction of gendered discourses. Stereotypes feed into both majority and minority constructions of Muslim women's gendered identities. I highlight Muslim women's resistance to and adoption of such stereotypes as they construct various modalities of interaction with men on campus.
