An event by the Joint Research Project "Muslime in Europa" in english:
Lecture by Ziba Mir-Hosseini, Research Associate, School of Oriental and African Studies, London

Die international angesehene Wissenschaftlerin und Dokumentarfilmerin ergreift seit Jahren zu dem brisanten Thema der Verhüllung des weiblichen Körpers im Islam und zu Geschlechterfragen das Wort. Sie ist Anthropologin und auf islamisches Recht spezialisiert. Zu diesen Themenfeldern hat sie nicht nur durch zahlreiche einschlägige Publikationen internationale Bekanntheit erlangt, sondern auch durch ihre Dokumentarfi lme „Divorce Iranian Style“ (1998) und Runaway (2001). Die Debatte entzündet sich oft an dem Umhang (Hijab), den auch Mir-Hosseini in ihrem Vortrag thematisieren wird:

Hijab, or covering of a Muslim woman‘s body, is the most visible Islamic mandate. For a century it has been a major site of ideological struggle between traditionalism and modernity, and is often seen as an indicator of the emancipation or repression of Muslim women. It has recently pitted Islamist and secular feminist rhetorics against each other. For Islamists, hijab represents their distinct identity and religious authenticity. They claim it is a divine mandate that protects women and defi nes their place in society. For secular feminists, hijab represents women‘s oppression. They see it as a patriarchal mandate that denies women the right to control their bodies and to choose what to wear. The obsession with the hijab in contemporary discourses (both Western and Islamic) speaks of its symbolic signifi cance. Meanwhile Muslim women have begun to challenge conventional wisdoms, and to redefine the terms of their public presence. In doing so, they are confronting prevailing notions of hijab, giving it a new meaning and symbolic value.

Die Veranstaltung wird moderiert von Dr. Schirin Amir-Moazami (Viadrina / Universität Frankfurt/Oder - Freie Universität)
