  • Female Islamic Interpretations on the Air : Fatwas and Religious Guidance by Women Scholars on Arab Satellite Channels
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: Media and Political Contestation in the Contemporary Arab World. - Palgrave. - 9781137539076 ; s. 210-238
  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The article discusses the phenomenon of Islamic women scholars on Arab television, and the ways that the advent of satellite television has created a new official space for women. This study examines three types of female presence: “The spiritual guide”, “the faqiha or Islamic scholar”, and “the female sexologist”. In all three figures there is an indication of a turn towards a more individualistic trend in relation to female spirituality and the role of women in Islamic legislation. The new airing of sexual issues in the public sphere further indicates a turn towards a more individualistic stance within Islamic discourse, and perhaps points to the emergence of a particular form of Islamic modernity.

  • Ingår i: Religious minorities in the Middle East : domination, self-empowerment, accommodation. - BRILL. - 978-90-04-20742-4 ; s. 149-170
  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The multiplicity of ethnic and religious communities in the social setting in Sudan has become the main explanation model for the ongoing conflicts in the country (before the partition-2011). The social tension is first and foremost portrayed in religious terms; there is an assumption that the Muslim-Christian division is the main cause of instability and that the basic line of demarcation goes between followers of these two religions. Moreover, Christians in Sudan are often depicted as the weaker part, and there is a tendency to single the ‘Southerners’ out as the Sudanese Christians par excellence, despite the fact that many Christian communities have lived in the North of Sudan for hundreds of years. This article builds on a fieldwork in Khartoum in 2007;the task consisted in interviewing Muslim and Christian leaders, as well as western representatives, particularly from Christian organisations responsible for aid programs among Christians in Khartoum and in Southern Sudan. Contrary to the claim of Christian-Muslim religious opposition our findings point to cultural differences between the mainly urbanised population in Northern Sudan and the mainly rural population in the South, as well as those between the Africanised South and the Arabised North, as important reasons for the social tensions. In both cases, the differences are unrelated to religious affiliation. A third reason is the variation in religious practices among Christians coming from the South and the long-established Christian communities in the North: the Sudanese Copts and the European and Middle Eastern Christians.
  • Media and political contestation in the contemporaray Arab world : a decade of change
  • 2015
  • Bok (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This book addresses the roles of various media in the shaping and active contestation of particular conflicts and political agendas in the Arab world. Interdisciplinary contributions examine the sociopolitical dynamics generated in and through media, with perspectives emerging from media studies, anthropology, religious studies, and political science. This book explores both new media and older media forms and formats including the press, satellite television, Facebook, Web 2.0 technology, posters, and music videos. Topics range across the politics of popular culture, women scholars' religious fatwas, the Palestinian visual public sphere, Hezbollah's media policy, women's presence on Arab satellite television, and the uses of Facebook in the Tunisian revolution. Contributors include such well-known scholars as Charles Hirschkind, Marwan Kraidy, Amahl Bishara, and Olfa Lamloum.

  • Religious Minorities in the Middle east. Domination, Self-empowerment, Accommodation
  • 2012
  • Bok (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The relationship between religious majorities and minorities in the Middle East is often construed as one of domination versus powerlessness. While this may indeed be the case, to claim that this is only or always so is to give a simplified picture of a complex reality. Such a description lays emphasis on the challenges faced by minorities, while overlooking their astonishing ability to mobilize internal and external resources to meet these challenges. Through the study of strategies of domination, resilience, and accommodation among both Muslims and non-Muslim minorities, this volume throws into relief the inherently dynamic character of a relationship which is increasingly influenced by global events and global connections.

  • “Benevolent Patriarchy” : Palestinian Women between “Ideal” and “Reality”
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations. - Routledge. - 0959-6410. ; 24:3, s. 333-347
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this article polygyny is used to illustrate how the ideal of benevolent patriarchy and the “good” Muslim man as the benevolent patriarch tends to create a discrepancy between the legal and the moral in Islamic legislation as well as in Islamic discourse. The study is based on fieldwork in the West Bank in 2011 when 49 Islamist and Islamic-oriented women were interviewed. The main finding of this study is that Islamist women tend to accept the Islamic gender system as the divine will, and they also accept its legal expression, Personal Status Law. However, there is a little awareness of the lack of legal consequences for men who do not behave according to the moral code, which is not explicitly but only implicitly assumed in the law.
