  • Fida J. Adely

Gendered Paradoxes: Educating Jordanian Women in Nation, Faith, and Progress by Fida J. Adely is a timely and engaging discussion of women, education, and nation in Jordan. Presenting rich ethnographic material, this book focuses on an understudied country, addressing issues often taken for granted, such as education and its relationship to development discourse, work, marriage, and femininity. Its theoretical sophistication speaks to both education and youth culture and provides an impressive account of the contestations and processes involved in constructing gendered and national identities.

The Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies Book Award has been established by the Association for Middle East Women’s Studies to recognize and promote excellence in the fields of Middle East women’s or gender studies, broadly defined. It is given to an author whose work is judged to provide the year’s most significant and potentially influential contribution to Middle East women’s or gender studies.
