Abstract

In this article the marginal position of the study of religion within gender studies as a purportedly interdisciplinary field of research is attained. Despite the increasing importance of knowledge about the relationship between religion and gender, this topic of study is often left up to feminist theologians, usually working autonomously within the discipline of theology. This research is often neglected within gender studies, which can foremost be ascribed to the 'awkward relationship' between feminism and religion in general. This exclusion is kept in place due to both the lack of interest for religious diversity and diversity in terms of the research relationship. It is suggested that a social science perspective may contribute substantially to a solution of the problem of the marginalisation of the study of religion within gender studies. It is argued that there must be more space for interdisciplinarity whereby both gender and religion are applied as multi-dimensional and contextualised categories of analysis.
