About Gender and Identity in the Middle East at University of Exeter

This programme focuses on the contemporary Middle East, and combines innovative teaching techniques with advanced research opportunities. It tackles increasingly important issues related to women and gender in the Middle East: gender ideologies and gender relations; the role of the nation state; religious and secular discourses and practices; war and conflict; women’s movements and feminism; Islamist thought and activism; men and masculinities; creativity and art.

It also addresses issues related to migration of Middle Eastern and Muslim women to the West: globalization; transnational migration and gender; social exclusion/inclusion of Muslim women migrants; Islamophobia; identity construction of Muslim women in the West.

These issues are seldom brought together, despite the fact that the Middle East extends to Muslim diasporas abroad. Moreover, in this age of globalisation, identity formation and identity politics cut across regions in new and dynamic ways. Our MA reflects these contemporary realities and tackles gender and transnationalism in an integrated and analytically coherent way.
