Ron Geaves: The Challenges of Researching Madrasas (Islamic seminaries)

Over the last ten years the author of the paper has been interested in the educational delivery provided by traditional madrasas and its role in training imams. Since the events of 7/7, such traditional imam training has come under scrutiny from both the media and policy makers, thus complicating the terrain for scholars of religion interested in the area of research. Having completed a major project in India where he visited 25 such institutions and interviewed over 60 senior ulema of the Deobandi tradition of South Asian Islam, Ron Geaves introduces the results of the field work but focuses his paper on the challenges that exist for scholars undertaking such research.
