Hadith, Sharia, personal experiences of Muslim women, ethnic and regional
diversities, oral histories, feminist theory, research, fiction, and
poetry. Authors may use a pseudonym if they prefer.
Please send a one-page abstract of your proposed contribution to Huma
Ahmed-Ghosh at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1, 2011. Proposals will be
evaluated for originality and writing style, as well as how all the
contributions fit together. Potential authors will be invited to write
full articles in the range of 5,000 to 7,500 words.
We hope you will consider writing about your scholarship or experiences,
so that this important topic receives the attention it deserves.
