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.
