About the speaker:
Professor Sophia Pandya specialises in women, religion, and globalisation. She received her B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley in Near Eastern Studies/Arabic, and her M.A. and Ph.D. from U.C. Santa Barbara in Religious Studies, with a focus on women and Islam. A Fulbright scholar, she researched Muslim women’s changing religious practices in Bahrain, looking at the impact of education on women’s religious activities, which became the topic of her dissertation. Dr. Pandya worked as a part-time lecturer at CSULB during 2005-2006, and was hired as a full-time assistant professor in 2006. After spending the summer of 2006 in Sana’a, Yemen, she is currently working on a project which examines religious change among educated Yemeni women, and the implications of modernity, globalization, and education on their practices.
