Sufism and Gender in Contemporary Societies

The Center for Comparative Studies of Civilisations and Spiritualities at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice has issued a Call for Papers for a conference on Sufism and Gender in Contemporary Societies.
This conference aims to explore these themes of gender and sexuality within contemporary and historical Sufi traditions. Keeping in mind the call to decolonize knowledge production and epistemologies that subvert binaries of “resistance versus subordination” in Muslim women’s life-worlds, we aim to take an expansive discussion of the complex processes of the agentive formation of gendered Sufi subjectivities.
Conference to be held in Venice on 3 December 2021. Abstracts by 1 June 2021. See
