March 13, 2007 | This video has been excerpted from the Berkley Center's event Good Hijab, Bad Hijab.
In this presentation, Dr. Elizabeth Bucar, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, discusses how two distinct cases of public hijabi practices can teach us about the productive power of the veil. Bucar explores the function of the veil in shifting Iranian political and ethical norms. Her presentation features images from her fieldwork in Iran in 2004.
