It’s a Wednesday afternoon at the Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations in London. Associate Professor Philip Wood’s class in “The Sacred Across Cultures” is discussing the ways different cultures regulate marriage and socialising between the sexes, and how such rules enable the transmission of faith, and empower some while disempowering others.
"You don’t have to agree with me. I’ve deliberately set out an argument for you to respond to."Dr Philip Wood
