Islam's Eternal Struggle: Interfaith Marriage
Penn State University’s Nina Safran examines that historical context and the implications of such marriages between religions—from medieval times to now—in a discussion, "She Nourishes Them According to Her Religion”: Interfaith Marriage, Conversion, and Transmission of Culture in the Medieval Islamic World.
Safran is an associate professor of history at Penn State. Her presentation, co-presented by the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s Medieval and Early Modern Studies program, is part of a series exploring connections between contemporary issues and medieval concepts of race, gender and identity.
