On 24-25 August 2017 we organize together with Yafa Shanneik (University of Birmingham) a workshop on ‘Global dynamics of Shia marriages’ at the University of Amsterdam.
This international exploratory workshop on Shia Marriages brings together researchers working on Iran, Oman, Lebanon, Pakistan, Indonesia, Ghana, the UK, Norway, Belgium, and the Netherlands. The workshop focuses on various strands of Twelver Shia Islam – defined by doctrinal differences or following different sources of clerical authority, the legal and ethical practices, rituals and everyday lived experience – and investigates how different forms of Shia marriage are debated and concluded.
The call for papers has long been closed (see CFP workshop shia marriages). For more information about the workshop and possibilities to attend, see, http://aissr.uva.nl/content/events/workshops/2017/08/global-dynamics-of-shia-marriages.html
