Talibanization

Anila Daulatzai

Description

The term Talibanization has come to be widely used to refer to religious conservatism and/or religious extremism, particularly (but not exclusively) as related to Islam, and particularly as oppressive towards women. This course will take a closer look at the emergence of "Talibanization," and at the various ways in which the term and others like it are deployed by a wide range of state and non-state actors to describe groups as diverse as advocates of Sharia law in Nigeria, Tea Party members in the U.S., and Hindu nationalists in India.
