Series scope: Marriage and family remain fundamental institutions in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). However, when people think of marriage in the MENA cultures, they tend to assume that many existing practices were originated with the birth of Islam and without subsequent interactions with other religions and cultures of the East or the West. This innovative series will explore the connections and influences among ancient, early Islamic, medieval, early modern, and contemporary marriage practices and traditions of the region. Through the lens of marriage laws and practice, we can see how these communities interacted, or resisted interacting with one another, in order to strengthen communal identities or secure communal boundaries. The series will examine a diverse set of issues such as various types of matrimonial bonds, the status of women in marriage, slavery, concubinage, divorce, polygamy, widowhood, parenting, pilgrimage rituals, and rules of property and inheritance for women, among others. This inter-disciplinary series, will include both edited volumes and monograms, and welcomes contributors from various disciplines such as Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science, History, Religious Studies, Gender Studies, Literature, and Media Studies.
