Muslim Cultural Politics: Family Dynamics and Gender

Programme Director: Professor Annelies Moors

This research programme addresses the politics of culture in Muslim societies, including such sensitive topics as family law reform, women migrant domestic workers, and the body politics of representation. Intersecting and interacting with other forms of identification and political mobilization, such as those based on nationality, ethnicity, and class. Both the family and gender have been and still are crucial categories in such contestations and hence central in the sub-programmes. These all employ a similar approach. Starting with public debates, they deal with the junctures and disjuncture between these debates and the practical politics of everyday life. They also investigate how these debates have been mass-mediated, and the impact of particular forms and genres of mass-mediation on the issues debated. This includes an investigation of the processes of inclusion and exclusion that are at stake and an analysis of how patterns of authority are reproduced, modified, or transformed.

a. Debating Family Law and Everyday Life

This sub-programme focuses on debates on family law reform. These debates indicate the political and cultural sensitivity of family-related issues in large parts of the Muslim world. ISIM has brought together an international group of scholars which has engaged in comparative research on the history of debates on family law (the participants involved, their argumentative styles, and the media and forums used), and has analysed the shifting relations between the state, religious functionaries, human rights NGOs, women activists, and the Islamists under conditions of globalization in the 1990s (published as a special issue of Islamic Law and Society in 2004). For the next five years the focus of this sub-programme will shift to an investigation of how these debates relate to legal practices and everyday life (a field in which a number of Ph.D. students work), dealing with new and controversial forms of marriage and divorce in the Middle East and beyond. In 2003 a conference titled "What Happened": Telling Stories about Law in Muslim Societies was held jointly with CEDEJ in Cairo. Furthermore,this programme will continue the research programme initiated by the former ISIM director, Prof. Muhammad Khalid Masud, on thesocial construction of sharia. In the course of the next three years, two topics will beaddressed in collaboration with Prof. Léon Buskens and colleagues abroad: the colonial construction of sharia and Islamic law and customs.

b. Migrant Domestic Workers: Transnational Relations, Families and Identities

This sub-programme intends to trace the transnational migration patterns of women who are positioned differently with respect to religion, ethnicity, and nationality in order to analyse the relations between gendered family dynamics, transnational migration, and the production of new identities. Both the overt workings of "political religion" in public debates about migrant domestic work and the much more covert cultural-religious notions that are submerged in normative ideas about the family, labour, and domesticity are addressed as well as their impact on the intimate, personalized relations between employers and domestics where the public and the private merge. Moors was a founding partner in the collaborative SSRC-funded project on "Migrant domestic workers: becoming visible in the public sphere?" (working with colleagues in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and the UAE); WOTRO has funded one postdoctoral position on the cultural politics of migrant   domestic labour, starting in 2004.

c. The Body Politics of Representation: Fashion and Gold

This sub-programme focuses on the body politics of representation, departing from Muslim women's appearance/embodied practices. Broadening the notion of the public sphere to a moreall-encompassing "politics of presence" itallows for theinclusion of other forms of critical expression and non-verbal modes of communication, such as through bodily comportment, appearance, and dressing styles, including lifestyle and consumption. Both dressing styles and wearing gold relate to particular forms of Muslim cultural politics, albeit in different ways. Whereas debates about dress focus on textual interpretations and practices need to be located in the field of globalized fashion, access to gold is intimately linked to Muslim institutions such as the dower and inheritance. A major conference on Islam and fashion has been organized at the University of Amsterdam in 2005.
