ReOrienting the Veil

Developed for a 2013 conference, "Reorienting the Veil" is a website that explores the role of and attitudes towards veiling in the Middle East and beyond. The site explores the veil across religion (Islam, Judaism, and Christianity) and region (France, Turkey, and East Africa). It offers links to articles concerning the veil, as well as a variety of multimedia explorations of it. Finally, it provides five related lesson plans in the "Resources" section under "Educators."
