On Being a Visibly Religious Muslim Woman: Piety and Polity in France

  • Jennifer A. Selby
Part of the Contemporary Anthropology of Religion book series (CAR)

I return to some of the ethnographic data discussed in the previous chapters and identify three examples beyond Petit Nanterre. I then briefly reconsider the secular/liberation equation.
