Global Dynamics of Shia Marriages Particular kinds of ‘Muslim marriages’
have recently been the focus of public debates in Europe and beyond,
both in Muslim-majority countries and in settings where Muslims are a
minority. Controversies abound about a wide range of marriages, varying
from unregistered or polygamous marriages, marriages with parties deemed
too young or too old, mixed marriages, to transnational and tourist
marriages. While these topics have also been addressed in academic
research, most authors have focused on marriages of Sunni Muslims. Our
workshop brings together researchers who are engaged in empirical
research about debating and concluding Shia marriages, starting from the
search for a suitable partner to the celebration of the wedding. Our aim
is to gain insight in how and to what extent various strands of Shia
Islam– be it in terms of doctrine and religious authority, legal and
ethical practices, rituals and everyday life – affect debates about
marriages and the ways in which they are concluded. We are, in
particular, interested in research about less conventional forms of
marriage, including (but not limited to) marriages with Sunni Muslims
and non-Muslims and temporary marriages.
