International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT)
Anwar Omeish is an undergraduate student at Harvard University concentrating in Social Studies with a secondary in Statistics. She is interested in epistemic decolonization and the implications it has for our Islam, as well as in thinking about Islam as a theology of liberation, integrating analyses and methodologies from within the Islamic tradition and critical theories from outside of it. Prior to her matriculation at Harvard, she spent a year studying Islamic theology and jurisprudence in Amman, Jordan. At Harvard, she is on the board of the Harvard Islamic Society, an officer of the Phillips Brooks House Association (the home of service and advocacy at Harvard) and an activist for campus labor rights, Palestinian issues, and the rights of students of color and other minorities on and off campus.
