Gendering 'Everyday Islam' was the theme of a recent special issue of the journal Contemporary Levant - an issue that set out to address the aspect of gender in the recent debate on 'everyday Islam' in scholarship, particularly anthropology, of Muslim societies. This special issue offers a valuable contribution to rethinking the gendered meanings of ‘everyday Islam,’ Islamic piety and normativity in contemporary Muslim-majority societies and their diasporas.

At this roundtable discussion, the editors of this special issue, Pnina Werbner and Claudia Liebelt will introduce the special issue theme and examples of research discussed therein. Contributor to this issue, Laura Ferrero will discuss her paper entitled: ‘Gendering Islam through migration: Egyptian women’s gathering in a mosque in Turin (Italy)’. Commentators include Deniz Kandiyoti.

Chair: Michelle Obeid, the journal’s editor and University of Manchester
