CCMW Muslim Women Scholars Series: November Edition

Traditional Storytelling in a Modern World

Speaker:: Ayesha S. Chaudhry

Join us on November 17th at 7:30pm ET for our next Muslim Women Scholars Series seminar!

Abstract: Ayesha S. Chaudhry will read from and engage in discussion about her recent book The Colour of God. Fusing grand historical narratives of colonialism and migration to the small, intimate heartbreaks of modern life, Ayesha S. Chaudhry examines the joys and sorrows of life in the wreckage of colonialism. In revisiting the beliefs and ideals she was raised with, Chaudhry invites us to reimagine our ideas of self and family, state and citizenship, love and loss.

About Muslim Women Scholars Series

The Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW) is pleased to present the Muslim Women Scholars Series. One of CCMW’s strategic goals is to promote critical thinking among Muslims and non-Muslims to challenge stereotypes and assumptions about Islam, Muslim women, and their families. One way of doing this is to feature the work of contemporary Muslim women scholars focusing on diverse topics related to Muslim women.
