Abstract:

This ethnography provides a theoretically informed account of the educational journeys of students in girls' madrasas in India. It focuses on the unfolding of young women's lives as they journey from home to madrasa and beyond. Using a series of ethnographic portraits and bringing together the analytical concepts of community, piety, and aspiration, it highlights the fluidity of the essences of the ideal pious Muslim woman. It illustrates how the madrasa becomes a site where the ideals of Islamic womanhood are negotiated in everyday life.
