4 PhD Fellowships “Muslim marriages”, The Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Amsterdam — LIMITE : 01/07/2014

This ethnographic project employs the term ‘Muslim marriages’ in a broad

sense, as it emerges in public debate and as a form of marriage practice
that at least one of the parties concerned considers Islamically valid.
It investigates both when and how particular marriage forms have become
subject to public debate and what kinds of new (or new uses of old)
marriage forms and wedding celebrations are emerging in everyday life.
Depending on context, this includes, for instance, unregistered,
visiting, temporary, interreligious, transnational, and polygamous
marriages.
Who are participating in these marriage forms, and how are
they performed? Who are able to shape these new forms? How and by whom
are such marriages authenticated, authorized or contested as Muslim
marriages? Under which conditions do particular forms of Muslim
marriages emerge and become licit while other forms become devalued and
marginalized? The wider question this project addresses is what
economic, political, religious and cultural work these new Muslim
marriages do. What subjectivities and socialities do they produce? How
do they shape economic relations, group boundaries, religious ethics,
and cultural forms?
Theoretically, this project intends to contribute to
fields such as: Islam, public debate, legal practices, and everyday
life; globalization, marriage and reproduction; the family, economy, and
intimacy; the body, gender, and sexuality; religion, ethics and aesthetics.
PhD candidates will be based in Amsterdam at the AISSR and will conduct
longer term ethnographic fieldwork, preferably in Indonesia, Lebanon,
Morocco, the Gulf States and the Balkans. Candidates with strong
arguments to do fieldwork elsewhere may also apply.
