Current research

As a part of the Rearticulating Islam project financed by VELUX FONDEN I am working with the phD project 'Muslim Women's Islamic Educational Activities'. Rearticulating Islam is led by Simon Stjernholm who is also supervising my PhD project.

My research consist of participant observations of classes in mosques, Quran study circles and the like, that have female teachers and participants, and of interviews with the participating women. I examine what kind of knowledge is produced in these educational settings, how it is produced discoursively and performatively. Likewise, I look into the role that the women's engagement in different educational activities means for their individual and collective identity-formation.
