RELS243 - WOMEN & RELIGIOUS AUTHORITY IN THE MUSLIM WORLD
This course will analyze the dynamics governing the construction and exercise of female religious authority in Islam. We will look at issues of gender and female religious authority with examples drawn from different Muslim-majority and Muslim-minority communities. This course examines women's lives in Muslim societies by paying particular attention to the ways women establish their religious authority, to spaces, networks and institutions that shape the construction of religious authority, to the impact of colonialism, imperialism and nation-state on women's lives, and to the forces of globalization and the emergence of women's movements that had a transformative impact on female religious authority.
