Experience as Epistemology in Muslim Medical Decision Making
Zahra Ayubi, PhD
Associate Professor of Religion, Dartmouth College
Lunch is provided for in-person attendees.
Livestreaming available via Zoom.
In this talk, I present ethnographic narratives of American Muslim women that deal with medical racism as well as patriarchal Islamic jurisprudential opinions (fatwas) on matters of reproductive health. I argue that ethical medical care of Muslim women requires centering their experiences and developing both religion and gender conscientious approaches.
