Unruly Women

Race, Neocolonialism, and the Hijab

Falguni A. Sheth

Philosophy of Race

  • Brings together postcolonial theory with critical and legal philosophy of race in a new methodological framework
  • Uses recent court cases involving Muslim women to illustrate the ways in which “unruly” populations are managed through legal and administrative processes
  • Explores institutional racism as a mechanism of division rather than racism as a habit of the heart
