Research interests

  • Women in religion
  • Feminist theories and practices in interreligious dialogue
  • Post-colonial studies
  • Women in Islam, Christianity, and Hinduism
  • Mythic biographies and performative autobiographies

My research currently focuses on the intersection of interreligious dialogue and feminist discourse, with emphasis on identity politics and hybridity. As well, Islamic feminisms, narrative discourse, and women's performative autobiographies are key to my research. I am writing my dissertation, "Feminist Dialogical Activism: A Hybrid Space for New Interreligious Identities."
