Lecture delivered by Professor Lila Abu-Lughod at Wesleyan University.

A leading voice in debates about culture, gender, Islam, and global feminist politics, Lila Abu-Lughod is the Joseph L. Buttenweiser Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Columbia University and the author of seven books, including Do Muslim Women Need Saving?; Veiled Sentiments: Honor and Poetry in a Bedouin Society; Dramas of Nationhood: The Politics of Television in Egypt; and Nakba: Palestine, 1948, and the Claims of Memory. In this lecture, she will be sharing new work on the dangerous collusion between international women's rights advocates and the global security enterprise called Countering Violent Extremism.
