Gender, Culture, and Politics in the Middle East

Syracuse University Press’s Gender, Culture, and Politics in the Middle East series focuses on gender as a category of analysis and as a process, in the study of the Middle East. The series examines the implications of political, social, and cultural developments in the region for women, men, and gender relations.

The books in this path breaking series are cross-cultural in scope and address some of the major issues being debated in the field today. We are particularly interested in texts that reflect the complexity of these issues and illuminate conflicts and contention rather than gloss over them. Among the issues to be addressed are:

  • Women, Gender, and Islam
  • Women’s Rights and Social/Political Movements
  • Gender, Work, and Development
  • Gender, the State, and Civil Society
  • Representations of Middle Eastern Women in Media and the Arts
  • Men and Masculinity
  • Feminism and the Politics of Identity
  • Women’s Movements and Feminism
The series seeks to capture the origins of contemporary debates around gender and power in the Middle East as a whole while paying attention to particularities and differences within the region.
