Call for papers

The special issue of Islamology aims to examine the variety of Muslim voices participating in debates over gender in Islam, focusing, among other aspects, on theological underpinnings of their arguments (i.e. employment and interpretation of the primary sources of Islamic teaching), contextual specificities (e.g. local traditions and community-shared rules), lived realities of Muslim men and women. Thereby, this issue seeks to combine historical, exegetical, legal, and sociological approaches to study gender in Muslim contexts and to contribute to scholarly efforts that envision bridging the existing gap between Islamic and Gender studies.

Authors interested in contributing to the special issue of Islamology are encouraged to submit their paper proposals (max. 500 words) to the guest editors, Gulnaz Sibgatullina and Michael Kemper, by February 1, 2021. Contributions can be written in any of the two languages used in the journal, Russian or English. Upon acceptance, the authors will receive within two weeks an invitation from the editors and should submit a full version of their paper by July 15, 2021.
