Madrasas and the Making of Islamic Womanhood

Hem Borker

  • Traces the complex trajectories of piety, rebellion, self- submission, tactical maneuvering of girls in Madrasas
  • Gives us a richer and more complex idea of Muslim feminine subjectivities linked to girl's Madrasas
  • Challenges and refutes policy ideas which take Madrasa educational aims at face value and assume that it necessarily inculcates traditional values among women who conform to normative societal expectations
