In this workshop, scholars will present work on Muslim feminist practice, theory and policy around the African continent, aiming at an inclusive view by drawing on scholarship on South, East, West and North Africa. The workshop will engage with current debates on Muslim feminism in Africa, and themes include interfaith dialogue, strategies for incorporating difference, the environment, religious authority and autobiography. During the course of the workshop, participants plan to revise their papers toward a publication that is intended to reach a broad audience both on the continent and beyond. The first part of the workshop will consist of a morning of public presentations followed by two closed sessions during which we plan to discuss and revise papers.
