Abstract

This volume collects some female educational perspectives, with special focus on Saudi Arabia. The introduction is by Hatoon Al Fassi, a Saudi historian originally from Makkah, who is specialist in women’s history at King Saud Uni- versity (Riyadh) and at Qatar University (Doha). She published books and articles in Arabic and in English on historical, social, economic, educational and political issues, with special reference to women’s is- sues, rights in Islam and reforms in her country. Hatoon Al Fassi deliv- ers much-needed insight into the lively debate open in Saudi society on crucial issues, such as the educational process and identity formation, and she remarks very significantly that in Saudi Arabia the crisis of identity is often justified by a “Saudi particularity”, which can also ex- plain the difficulties that some local social forces are facing “in dealing with modernity”.
