This edited volume makes a major intervention into the field of migration studies by charting new ground through the vectors of gender and religion. The editors have skillfully managed to arrange provocative essays that cut across multiple disciplines, geographical sites, research methodologies, and religious orientations. A major facet of this critical work is the way it gives significant space to the gendered realities of both women and men. All together, it promises to alter forever the way we think about migratory processes and the religiously gendered lives of those who dare to move.
— Zain Abdullah, author of Black Mecca: The African Muslims of Harlem
An excellent collection of complex, nuanced, and deeply informative research on how religion intersects with gender and shapes migration. The editors and authors have successfully produced an extremely cohesive and consequently insightful body of work!
— Sara R. Curran, University of Washington
For those who are looking for empirically grounded studies into the genderization of immigrant religiosity, this book is a true treasure trove.
