Conferences, Calls For Papers & other opportunities
a colleague at the University of Hamburg, Viola Thimm, is organizing a workshop on “Gender, Fashion, and Embodiment in Islam” on 29-30 June 2019, that may be of interest for some of you.
The central aim of the conference is to bring together research on the changing meanings and practices of gendered clothing in Muslim contexts. We want to compare the dynamics in the so-called and self-proclaimed “Islamic center” (the Arabian Peninsula) with developments in the so called “Muslim Periphery.” Foregrounding contemporary scholars’ diverse theoretical and methodological approaches, the workshop aims to problematise and complicate the discursive and lived interactions and intersections between gender, fashion, spirituality, religion, class, and ethnicity.
