As part of the “Midan Mounira” lecture series, we are pleased to invite you to an online and live conference by Asma Lamrabet on Sunday 21st February at 6pm. This conference is proposed to you by the Dominican Institute of Oriental Studies and is entitled “The question of women at the center of the spiritual renewal of Islam”.
Asma Lamrabet is a medical biologist and essayist. She is currently head of the chair of gender at the Euro-Arab Foundation of the University of Granada and is a member of the scientific committee of the National Institute of Human Rights of Morocco. She is also the author of several books, translated into several languages, including Islam and Women: the angry questions (Gallimard Folio, Grand Atlas 2017 Prize).
In this conference, she will analyze the question of women, which remains central to contemporary debates in the Arab-Muslim world in general and in Muslim reformism in particular. Today, a female dynamic within the Muslim world has tried since the 1990s to initiate a feminist and reformist rereading of scriptural texts.
