The Veil, Critical Theory, Politics, and Contemporary Society This conference offers a forum to problematize the prevailing surrounding the veil while exploring the veil's subversive potential.The extent to which the veil can erode, or even invert power and oppression is, with the exception of various Islam-inspired positions, an overlooked and under-explored area of academic theorizing.
