Dr. Andreja Mesarič (Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of East European Studies) invites you to join the course on Gender in Muslim Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
„The course examines the role of gender in Muslim religious practices as well as in political contestations over the place of Islam in contemporary Eastern Europe and Central Asia. It explores how post-socialist transformation has affected Islamic religious authority, popular discourses on Islam, and the lived reality of Muslims as gendered subjects. It includes a historical discussion of state intervention into the lives of Muslim communities focussing on the 20th century. In addition to gender, the course pays particular attention to race and coloniality as lenses useful in understanding the experience of Muslims in the region. The course is relevant to students with a regional focus on the Balkans, Russia, and post-Soviet Central Asia as well as anyone interested in intersections between religion and gender, ethnographic approaches to religion, and the gender history of Eastern Europe and Central Asia.“
