This book explores educational and cultural experiences of 'part-time' unveilers during their undergraduate degree programs in public institutions in Turkey. The term 'part-time unveiler' is coined to refer to undergraduate female students who cover their hair in their private lives in line with the tenets of Islam, but who remove the headscarf while at a Turkish university in order to comply with the higher education headscarf ban policy. This is a qualitative study based on one-to-one interviews with thirty participants and informed by grounded theory. It highlights how part-time unveilers understand and negotiate the policy, the challenges and opportunities associated with unveiling and the strategies they use in response to these, and the impact of the headscarf ban on part-time unveilers' sense of identity.
