Creative Conformity

Much feminist scholarship has viewed Catholicism and Shi'i Islam as two religious traditions that, historically, have greeted feminist claims with skepticism or outright hostility. Creative Conformity demonstrates how certain liberal secular assumptions about these religious traditions are only partly correct and, more importantly, misleading. In this highly original study, Elizabeth Bucar compares the feminist politics of eleven US Catholic and Iranian Shi'i women and explores how these women contest and affirm clerical mandates in order to expand their roles within their religious communities and national politics. Using scriptural analysis and personal interviews, Creative Conformity demonstrates how women contribute to the production of ethical knowledge within both religious communities in order to expand what counts as feminist action, and to explain how religious authority creates an unintended diversity of moral belief and action. Bucar finds that the practices of Catholic and Shi‘a women are not only determined by but also contribute to the ethical and political landscape in their respective religious communities. She challenges the orthodoxies of liberal feminist politics and, ultimately, strengthens feminism as a scholarly endeavor.

This book examines gender and the dynamics of social change in contemporary Iran, documenting the changes in women’s lives and showing how women have now become agents of social change rather than victims. Bringing together the detailed primary research of a number of eminent scholars working in Iran, this collection provides unique perspectives on the past decade in Iranian society. Chapters document and examine how different Iranian groups and classes are negotiating, resisting, and pressing for political and social change, to explore the complexity of a society that often is portrayed in monolithic stereotypes in the international media. Thematically arranged sections explore discourses around gender and the impact of these discourses on women; the gendered impact of educational, employment, communications, and cultural changes; changing gender attitudes among the post-revolutionary generation of youth; and the ways economic changes have been affecting women. Providing an important basis for understanding social and political developments in a country that has been a focus of international attention for much of the last decade, this collection will be an important reference for scholars of Iranian studies, gender studies, political science and sociology.

Are women benefiting from current changes in the Middle East media? With media all over the world still marginalizing women and trivializing gender inequalities, how does the situation in the Middle East compare? Proliferating satellite channels have increased women’s visibility in the region but visibility does not necessarily confer power. This book explores various ways in which media have been used to open up possibilities for women in the Middle East or, conversely, to restrict them. Having as their starting point the diverse experiences and multi-layered identities of women, the contributors treat media institutions and practices as part of wider power relations in society. By analyzing media production, consumption and texts, they reveal where and how gender boundaries have been erected or crossed. In eleven chapters, Women and Media in the Middle East spans both the region, from Iran to Morocco, and the media, from film and broadcasting to the press and internet. It looks back at women’s journalism in pre-1952 Egypt and forward to future trends in women’s internet use. One chapter shows how Maghrebi women filmmakers achieved a belated symbolic liberation for the ‘colonized of the colonized’. Another reveals how Egyptian political films link the representation of women to nationalist ideals. A study of the women’s press in Iran shows how it forced gender to the forefront of government concerns, while an investigation of Kuwait’s mainstream press uncovers duplicity in the struggle over female suffrage. A chapter on audience reception exposes clashing identity constructions and competing knowledge systems in a rural community. Further chapters explore an experiment in gender awareness programming on Palestinian TV and women’s role on Hezbollah’s television station, Al-Manar. The book begins by considering whether research on women and media in other contexts can be applied to the Middle East. It ends by discussing the careers of seven well-knon Arab women journalists. Rich and illuminating, this highly original book will be useful to scholars, media professionals and general readers interested in women’s studies, media and shifting power structures in the Middle East.

In a comprehensive and original analysis, Parvin Paidar considers the role of women in the political process of twentieth-century Iran and demonstrates how political reorganization has redefined their position. Challenging the view expressed by conventional scholarship that emphasizes the marginalization of Muslim women, the author asserts that gender issues are right at the heart of the political process in Iran. The implications of the study bear on the position of women throughout the Middle East and in the developing countries generally.

Vom Tod bedroht und vogelfrei Am Valentinstag, dem 14. Februar 1989, erhält Salman Rushdie den Anruf einer BBC-Reporterin und erfährt, dass der Ayatollah Khomeini ihn »zum Tode verurteilt« hat. Zum ersten Mal hört er das Wort »Fatwa«. Sein Vergehen? Einen Roman mit dem Titel »Die satanischen Verse« geschrieben zu haben, dem vorgeworfen wird, sich »gegen den Islam, den Propheten und den Koran« zu richten. So beginnt die außergewöhnliche Geschichte eines Schriftstellers, der gezwungen wird, unterzutauchen und in ständiger Begleitung einer bewaffneten Polizeieskorte von Aufenthaltsort zu Aufenthaltsort zu ziehen. Als die Polizei ihn auffordert, sich einen Decknamen zuzulegen, wählt er eine Kombination aus den Vornamen seiner Lieblingsschriftsteller Conrad und Tschechow – Joseph Anton. Was heißt es für einen Schriftsteller und seine Familie, über neun Jahre lang mit einer Morddrohung zu leben? Wie gelingt es ihm, weiter zu schreiben? Wie beginnt und endet für ihn die Liebe? Wie fest hat die Verzweiflung sein Denken und Handeln im Griff, was lässt ihn straucheln, und wie lernt er, Widerstand zu leisten? Zum ersten Mal erzählt Salman Rushdie seine beeindruckende Geschichte; es ist die Geschichte eines der entscheidenden Kämpfe unserer Zeit: der Kampf um die Meinungsfreiheit. Rushdie erzählt vom teils bitteren, teils komischen Leben unter bewaffnetem Polizeischutz und von den engen Beziehungen, die er zu seinen Beschützern knüpfte; von seinem Ringen um Unterstützung und Verständnis bei Regierungen, Geheimdienstchefs, Verlegern, Journalisten und Schriftstellerkollegen; und davon, wie er seine Freiheit wiedererlangte. Ein einzigartig offenes, aufrichtiges Buch: fesselnd, provokant, bewegend und lebenswichtig. Denn das, was Salman Rushdie durchlebt hat, ist der erste Akt eines Dramas, das sich tagtäglich irgendwo auf dieser Welt vollzieht.

Are Islam and the West on a collision course? From the Ayatollah Khomeini to Saddam Hussein, the image of Islam as a militant, expansionist, and rabidly anti-American religion has gripped the minds of Western governments and media. But these perceptions, John L. Esposito writes, stem from a long history of mutual distrust, criticism, and condemnation, and are far too simplistic to help us understand one of the most important political issues of our time. In this new edition of The Islamic Threat: Myth or Reality?, Esposito places the challenge of Islam in critical perspective. Exploring the vitality of this religion as a global force and the history of its relations with the West, Esposito demonstrates the diversity of the Islamic resurgence--and the mistakes our analysts make in assuming a hostile, monolithic Islam. This third edition has been expanded to include new material on current affairs in Turkey, Afghanistan, Palestine, and Southeast Asia, as well as a discussion of international terrorism.
