Chair Dr. Stetz

Women & Gender Studies Chair Dr. Patricia Sloane-White,  a social anthropologist who is Professor of Anthropology and a member of the Asian Studies and Islamic Studies Programs at UD, has researched Islam, capitalism, entrepreneurship, corporate business, and gender in Malaysia for over two decades and was a recipient of a Fulbright Research Fellowship to Malaysia in 2008-2009 and a Fulbright Specialist Scholar to Malaysia in 2014. 

Her latest book, Corporate Islam: Sharia and the Modern Workplace (Cambridge University Press), "offers a unique insight into the modern Islamic corporation, revealing how power, relationships, individual identities, gender roles, and practices - and often massive financial resources - are mobilized on behalf of Islam. Focusing on Muslims in Malaysia, Dr. Patricia Sloane-White argues that sharia principles in the region's Islamic economy produce a version of Islam that is increasingly conservative, financially and fiscally powerful, and committed to social control over Muslim and non-Muslim public and private lives."
