RESEARCH IN PROGRESS SEMINAR SERIES

AT THE ROYAL ANTHROPOLOGICAL INSTITUTE

Friday 19 February, 4.30 pm

Passive, voiceless victims or actively seeking a religious education? Qur’anic school students in Senegal

Anneke Newman, University of Sussex

This presentation will problematise dominant representations in grey and academic literature of Qur'anic school students in Senegal as passive victims, 'marginalised' or 'excluded' from state schooling. Using empirical data from 15 months' doctoral fieldwork it shows young people's active decision-making processes including preference for Qur'anic schools. These findings have important policy implications, and inform theory which acknowledges' young people's agency in shaping their educational trajectories and religious identity.
