Writing Against Islamic Dramas. Islamisches Familienrecht neu denken


Dennerlein, Bettina (2010). Writing Against Islamic Dramas. Islamisches Familienrecht neu denken. Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 64(3):517-533.

Abstract

Starting from a brief discussion of current politics of “othering” at the intersection of culture, gender and sexuality, the present paper takes up critical perspectives from anthropological research and area studies in order, on the one hand, to point to the relevance of looking at transfers and interconnections, on the other hand, to understand how gender and constructions of cultural identity are historically enmeshed. With a view to demonstrating the pertinence of this perspective, examples from contemporary Muslim family law are analysed with a major focus on the Moroccan experience of reform.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
