muslima theology1

El próximo 31 de julio estará disponible el libro colectivo “Muslima Theology. The Voices of Muslim Women Theologians” en el que he tenido el placer de colaborar con un capítulo titulado “Feminist Readings of the Quran: Social, Political, and Religious Implications”. Aquí tenéis la información (en inglés).

Book synopsis

This pioneering volume defines the contours of the emerging engagements of Muslim women scholars from around the world with the authoritative interpretive traditions of Islam, classical and contemporary. Muslima theology, here broadly defined to encompass a range of interpretive strategies and perspectives arising from multiple social locations, interrogates Islamic scripture and other forms of religious discourse to empower Muslim women of faith to speak for themselves in the interests of gender justice. Contributions provide an overview of the field at this juncture-ranging from pioneering Muslim scriptural feminism to detailed analyses of legal and mystical texts by a new international cohort of Muslim women academics and activists. Contemporary female Muslim “constructivist” approaches articulate concerns with diversity, including race and religious pluralism, paralleling developments in womanist and mujerista readings of religious texts.
