Yvonne Haddad

Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad (born in Syria) is Professor of the History of Islam and Christian–Muslim Relations at the Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim–Christian Understanding at Georgetown University. Her interests and focus include contemporary Islam; intellectual, social and political history in the Arab world; Islam in the West; Quranic Exegesis; and gender and Islam. Haddad's current research focuses on Muslims in the West and on Islamic Revolutionary Movements.[1] She has published extensively in the field of Islamic studies.

Haddad has been described as "at the top of her field in the study of Muslims in America"[2] and "the foremost interpreter of the Islamic experience in the United States."[3] She is the leading figure in a school of thought that sees the key issue for Muslims in the USA as being the conflict between traditional Islamic values and integration into mainstream US society.[4]

Haddad received her Ph.D. in the Economic, Political Development, and Islamic Heritage in 1979 from Hartford Seminary in Hartford, Connecticut, and her Masters Degree in Comparative History 1971 from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Additionally, she attended Boston University, where she received an M.R.E. in Religious Education and Leadership Development in 1966, and the Beirut College for Women in Lebanon.[1] She was also Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.[5]

Yvonne Haddad describes herself as a Presbyterian.[6] She emigrated to the United States in 1963.[6]
