Women, Religion, and Space by Karen M. Morin

Book Description

Contributors to this volume study women who practice or interact with the gender norms and spaces of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The book focuses on questions of how and why religious and secular authorities seek to regulate women's mobility and access to particular spaces, and how religious women negotiate their agency and mobility within traditional institutions. The chapters are grouped under three sections: "Women and Colonial Regimes," "Religion and Women's Mobility," and "New Spaces for Religious Women." Secular, critical, and comparative viewpoints are explored, with much of the scholarship steeped in fieldwork; i.e., an orthodox district in Jerusalem, a shopping mall in Istanbul, women travelers in Pakistan, and Korean immigrant women in Los Angeles. Contributors broaden notions of space to include architecture, national borders, external and internal boundaries, and assorted identifying markers such as race and clothing and their associated mobilities. Multicultural and global in scope, this work makes a significant, groundbreaking contribution to the fields of geography, women's studies, and religious studies.
