Feminist Reflections on the Study of the Feminization and Masculinization of Religion
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Ethnology, History of Religions and Gender Studies, History of Religions.
2016 (English)In: Contemporary Encounters in Gender and Religion: European Perspectives / [ed] Lena Gemzöe, Marja-Liisa Keinänen, Avril Maddrell, Palgrave Macmillan, 2016, 55-75 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The chapter scrutinizes some of the methodological and epistemological consequences that the dismissal of feminist theory by those scholars of men’s studies who have severed the bonds to feminist research has had for the study of feminization and masculinization of religion. Due to their dismissal of feminist theory, these scholars have not been able to avoid certain classic gender theoretical pitfalls and have therefore come to reintroduce and reproduce the shortcomings of conventional, gender-blind scholarship in the study of religion. In the name of disinterested, value-free research they risk to rehegemonize the study of religion as they reintroduce an androcentric bias, which feminist scholarship from its very inception has sought to deconstruct as it makes women’s religious practice invisible.
