Tazeen Ali

Tazeen Ali is a Ph.D. student in the Texts and Traditions track, focusing on the relationship between the discursive constructions of gender and sexuality in the exegetical and jurisprudential traditions of Islam under the supervision of Dr. Kecia Ali. She is interested in the historical transformations of Islamic law from the pre-modern to modern eras and the resultant politics of women’s bodies and social engagement, with a focus on the impact of modernity on religious identity, particularly in the context of South Asia, as well as in Muslim minority communities in North America and Europe. She earned her MA in Islamic Studies at Washington University in St. Louis and her BA in Biology and Religious Studies at Lehigh University. (GDRS)
