Nadje Al-Ali & Kathryn Spellman Poots introduce a new book series, "Critiquing Gender and Islam: Transnational, Intersectional and Queer Perspectives," and invite submissions.
This series approaches gender as a category of analysis, a platform of mobilisation and activism, an essential aspect of governance, and a signifier of power relations that intersect with other inequalities. Encouraging interdisciplinary approaches and methodologies, Critiquing Gender & Islam mainly features empirically grounded work, including ethnographic, visual, and discursive material. Sexuality and queer politics are important aspects of the series’ understanding of the politics of gender.
