“Coercion or Empowerment? Official Anti-Veiling Campaigns in the Middle East and Central Asia”
St Antony's College, Dahrendorf Room, University of Oxford
Friday 23 September 2011
This conference will look at the official anti-veiling campaigns in the interwar Middle East and Central Asia from a comparative historical perspective. It will examine as wide a range of historical episodes as possible and draw conclusions about the nature, objectives, achievements and failures of these campaigns, which have such a striking contemporary resonance.
This event has been convened by Dr Stephanie Cronin, Faculty of Oriental Studies, Oxford and supported by the Iran Heritage Foundation and the Faculty of Oriental Studies, Oxford.programme).
