Education, Poverty and Gender : Schooling Muslim Girls in India Paperback / softback

Description

This book investigates the nature of identity formation among economically backward adolescent Muslim girls in northern India by focusing on the interstitial spaces of the `home' and `school'.

It examines issues of religion, patriarchy and education, to interrogate the relationship between pedagogy and religion in South Asia.

Using a multi-disciplinary approach and multiple research methods, the volume makes significant contribution to the study of socialisation and modern education among minorities and other marginalised groups in India.

It will be of interest to scholars of education, culture and gender studies, sociology, psychology, Islamic studies, and to policy-makers and non-government organisations involved in education.
