‘Of 'Ālimahs, Muhaddithahs, and Mujtahidahs’: The Past and Present of Female Religious Authority in Shi‘i Islam"

 

Workshop: ‘Of 'Ālimahs, Muhaddithahs, and Mujtahidahs’: The Past and Present of Female Religious Authority in Shi‘i Islam", Princeton University, 6-8 March 2014


Conveners: Mirjam Künkler (Princeton University, USA) and Keiko Sakurai (Waseda University, Japan)

We invite paper proposals that focus on Shi‘ite female religious authority across any time period. The workshop has the aim of taking stock of the research developments in this field and establishing a research network of those scholars working on the issue in diverse geographic environments and across various time frames. The network can then identify possibilities and occasions for further research collaborations and the development of larger, comparative and inter-disciplinary research projects incorporating the findings developed here.

Deadline for proposals 1 November 2013. The call for papers is posted at http://www.kikou.waseda.ac.jp/ias/data/files/CfPFemRelAuth.pdf
