Event Description :
 "Madrasas and the Making of Islamic Womanhood" Release of the book by Hem Borker (Oxford University Press, 2018) Followed by a discussion

Speakers: Prof. Ashis Nandy, Political Psychologist and Social Theorist; Dr. David Mills, Associate Professor in Pedagogy and the Social Sciences, Department of Education, University of Oxford; Dr. Mohammad Talib, Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Fellow, Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, University of Oxford; and Dr. Aseem Prakash, Professor, School of Public Policy and Governance, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Hyderabad

Amongst the few ethnographic studies on girl’s madrasas in India, the book focuses on unfolding of young women’s lives as they journey from their home to madrasas and beyond. The study problematizes the idealized and coherent notions of piety presented by anthropological literature on female participation in Islamic piety projects. The author’s ethnographic portraits challenge the dominant media’s representation of madrasas as outmoded religious institutions.

Hem Borker has completed her D.Phil from the University of Oxford, U.K where she was a Clarendon Scholar. She is Assistant Professor, Centre for Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy, Jamia Millia Islamia

Collaboration: Jan Pahal Trust; and Oxford University Press
