Dr Moyra Dale

MICS Lecturer

BA (Linguistics), PhD, ThD

Moyra spent two years working with Bible translators on an indigenous community in Western Australia. This was followed by three years at Bible College, then twenty-two years in the Middle East. Much of that time was in Egypt, with some years also in Jordan and Syria. She has worked extensively in Adult Literacy (Ngaanyatjarra and then Arabic), teaching and teacher-training. She  has also worked in TESL, teaching and teacher-training from kindergarten to university levels.

As an ethnographer, her research has included exploring adult literacy in Egypt and the women’s mosque movement in Syria through women’s accounts and understanding of their own lives and realities.  Affiliated with CMS, she has also worked with UAM, MECO and OM.  For the past decade she has taught at St Andrew’s Hall in Melbourne, and in Bible Colleges in Australia and overseas, focusing on Islam and Cultural Anthropology.  With Cathy Hine she is co-founder of When Women Speak  - a network equipping those working among Muslim women around the world through training, research and writing. Moyra has a PhD in Education (La Trobe University) and DTh (Melbourne School of Theology).

Moyra teaches as part of the online SMBC Master of Intercultural Studies (MICS).
