Her work examines public controversies about Islam in Europe and the United States and debates about religious freedom and democratization in North Africa.

This event is part of the MENA Monday Night series, a partnership between Northwestern’s MENA Program and the Evanston Public Library aimed at expanding the public’s understanding of the MENA region and fostering a forum for questions and dialogue.
