Project TitleHefner Claire-Marie (Florida State U.) "Achieving Islam: Women, Piety, and Moral Play in Indonesian Muslim Boarding Schools"
CLAIRE-MARIE HEFNER, then at Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida, was awarded a Hunt Fellowship in October 2020 to aid research and writing on “Achieving Islam: Women, Piety, and Moral Play in Indonesian Muslim Boarding Schools.” The fellowship supported the complete revision of the manuscript based upon the grantee’s a comparative study of women’s achievement, moral learning, and gendered agency in two highly regarded Islamic boarding schools for middle- through high-school aged girls in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The manuscript is now fully drafted, with the exception of a short epilogue on the post-pandemic status of these institutions, to be written in the summer of 2023 after a brief follow up visit to these institutions. Funding also supported the development of several articles, including a piece for American Ethnologist (2022) and HAU (currently under review).
