Hermeneutics of Gendered Space and Discourse

By: Asma Afsaruddin

“The study of gender as an academic discipline is a fairly recent development in the humanities and social sciences. Pioneering works that have focused on gender have considerably affected academic discourse on how we interpret the paradigms of social, economic, and ultimately power relations between men and women, in both modern and pre-modern societies. The study of the roles of women and related issues of gender in Islamic/ate societies is an even more recent phenomenon and one that spans several disciplines. Its growing importance and relevance to our times is attested by the current explosion of publications on this theme and the spirited debate that often accompanies this topic.”
