Muslim Community Efforts against Domestic Violence: Sajida Jalalzai in conversation with Juliane Hammer, author of Peaceful Families (Princeton 2019)

-

Speaker(s): Dr. Juliane Hammer; Dr. Sajida Jalalzai
In Peaceful Families, Juliane Hammer chronicles and examines the efforts, stories, arguments, and strategies of individuals and organizations doing Muslim anti-domestic violence work in the United States. Looking at connections among ethical practices, gender norms, and religious interpretation, Hammer demonstrates how Muslim advocates mobilize a rich religious tradition in community efforts against domestic violence, and identify religion and culture as resources or roadblocks to prevent harm and to restore family peace.
