Workshop: Global Dynamics of Shia Marriages

An international exploratory workshop, 24-25 August 2017, University of Amsterdam

Organized by Annelies Moors (AISSR, UvA) and Yafa Shanneik (University of Birmingham), this workshop brings together researchers working on Iran, Oman, Lebanon, Pakistan, Indonesia, Ghana, the UK, Norway, Belgium, and the Netherlands. It focuses on various strands of Twelver Shia Islam – defined by doctrinal differences and sources of clerical authority, legal and ethical practices, rituals and everyday lived experience – and investigates how different forms of Shia marriage are debated and concluded.
