Muslim and Arab Education in the West


Collection home page

Dr. Nimat Hafez Barazangi began her combined scholarly active work with the education of Arabs and Muslims in North America and in the Arab/Muslim world in late 1960s. Her focus was the integration of the young generation within the Western educational and cultural systems without loosing their Islamic/Arabic identity. Her many years of participatory action research with the Muslim/Arab community, in order to develop curricular framework for educating them in Islam, culminated in her editing a special issue of Religion and Education as well as the special chapter in her monograph Woman's Identity and the Qur'an: A New Reading. She also published about 15 research articles on this subject.
