Questioning French Secularism : Gender Politics and Islam in a Parisian Suburb, Hardback Book

Questioning French Secularism : Gender Politics and Islam in a Parisian Suburb Hardback

Part of the Contemporary Anthropology of Religion series

Description

Based on extensive ethnographic fieldwork, this book examines how contemporary secularism in France is positioned as a guarantor of women's rights.

Selby argues that the complex "fetishization" of headscarves in public, governmental, and feminist French discourse positions publicly-visible Muslim women in ways that obscure their engagement with laicite (French secularism).
