“Handwriting the Quran: Inscribing Devotion in Contemporary Pakistan”

This paper examines inscriptional/writing practices among women participants of
Quranic study in urban Pakistan. New religious educational programs designed to teach women
the translation and interpretation of the Quran have become very popular in urban centers of
Pakistan. In particular, reading comprehension is braced and performed by the act of inscribing
the meaning of the Quran through one’s interpretive labor. This paper ethnographically explores
how new pedagogies and knowledge practices related to religious learning are employed in these
sites and mediate women’s relationship with the Quran.

“Mohandas Gandhi and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS): Two Complex and Overlapping Social Movements in Colonial and Contemporary India”

Scholars of social movements and Indian nationalism juxtapose Mohandas Gandhi’s non-violent movement with the xenophobic Hindu nationalist movement that has organized ferocious episodes of ethnic cleansing against minority communities in contemporary India. Through a close reading of Gandhi’s writing on popular mobilization and resistance, and a detailed historical investigation of hitherto understudied Quit India Movement in 1942, I underscore the continuities and discontinuities between Gandhi’s satyagraha movement and the militant Hindu nationalist movement in the western Indian state of Gujarat in the colonial and postcolonial periods. In particular I describe the competing and complementary visions of both movements which emphasized the virtues of discipline, strategy and affective masculinity.
