ONLINE: Muslim Women Travellers

Wed 08 Mar, 6:00 pm7:30 pm

About the event

MACFEST presents an exciting online event for International Women’s Day with Professor Siobhan Lambert-Hurley, who will talk about her new book: Three Centuries of Travel Writing by Muslim Women.

This illustrated online talk will look at the fascinating first-hand accounts of travel by Muslim women dating from the 17th to the mid-20th century. Challenging preconceived notions, it will offer an insight into how these daring and diverse women – queens, captives, pilgrims, provocateurs – explored the world. What unites these adventurers is a concern for the other women they encounter, their willingness to record their experiences and the constant thoughts they cast homewards.

Professor Siobhan Lambert-Hurley has co-edited Three Centuries of Travel Writing by Muslim Women with Daniel Majchrowicz and Sunil Sharma.

The event will be presented by Siobhan Lambert-Hurley, Professor of Global History at the University of Sheffield
