Women, patronage, and self-representation in Islamic societies

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The essays examine occasions when Muslim women from the twelfth century to the present took the stance of viewer, writer, performer or patron of art and literature. Some essays explore the limits to female agency in a world where the public social institutions were run by men; others focus on the rise of self-conscious feminism in the modern world and the active participation of women in public discourse and social institutions.
