Fatima Seedat has submitted her dissertation for a PhD in Islamic Law at McGill University and is presently a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Cape Town. Her dissertation investigates the discursive construction of the female legal subject through a study of “legal capacity” (al-ahliyya) in Islamic law. Using interdisciplinary methods from critical legal studies, feminist philosophy and Islamic jurisprudence she proposes a de-colonial approach to the critical study of sex difference in Islamic law. She is also a founder of Shura Yabafazi, a South African NGO that focuses on sex difference in Muslim family law. She may be contacted at email@example.com
