MARTHA BAILEY will speak on:
UNDERSTANDING ISLAM: NETWORKS ACROSS TIME AND SPACE
Martha Bailey participated in a National Endowment for the Humanities Institute for College and University Faculty this past summer, "Islam in Asia Traditions and Transformations". As an outgrowth of the institute, there is a volume on Islam planned for undergraduate students. Martha will present her preliminary work on a chapter for that book, a framing chapter to introduce students to Islam as a religion that has developed many cultural expressions in its movement through Asia.
Martha Bailey teaches Philosophy and Religious Studies at Portland Community College and Clackamas Community College. In addition to those fields, she also has background in Geophysics and Education.
