Fundamentalism and Gender
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Fundamentalism and Gender boldly debunks the common pairs of secular/progressive, religious/conservative and offers instead an unusually subtle and much welcome analysis of gender, sexuality, and religion for both scholarly and popular audiences. From wide-ranging perspectives on religion, science, and politics, the authors daringly further our understanding of the formation of modern religious and secular knowledge and investigate how race, nationality, and class contribute to both. An extraordinary achievement."
--Marcia Pally, Multilingual Multicultural Studies, New York University
"By bringing together a renowned group of scholars, Fundamentalism and Gender provides a new and sophisticated analysis of two critical keywords that both complicate and illuminate each other. This book will foster discussion about a host of topics, certainly including scripture, body, and community, but also setting in motion terms like secularism, nationalism, literalism, science and biopolitics. Thanks to the intelligence of both the editors and contributors, the conversations sparked by this book will move our thinking forward."
--Janet Jakobsen, Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Barnard College, Columbia University
