Abstract [en]

The present article focuses on the choices teachers make when teaching Islamic religious education (IRE) in the town of Kisumu, Kenya. The data were collected through interviews with IRE teachers and participant observations in schools that offered IRE during several fieldwork sessions in the period2003-2006 . The fieldwork revealed that the choices teachers made were related to social and religious contexts both inside and outside the school setting and also the more immediate contexts of the teaching-learning situation. Most clearly, the choices were influenced by the fact that IRE is an examinable subject in a larger educational system. This article claims that an alternation between a confessional education into Islam and a more fact-oriented education about Islam was a strategy used by some teachers balancing between competing demands posed by the educational system, students, parents and the surrounding local society.

Abstract [sv]

Människor och makter är en introduktion till olika arbetssätt inom religionsvetenskap. I de olika bidragen författade av religionsvetenskapliga forskare verksamma i norden presenteras och diskuteras övergripande frågor kring perspektiv och förhållningssätt. Dessutom besvaras grundläggande frågor kring vilka olika sätt det finns att – praktiskt och teoretiskt – närma sig religiösa trossystem och praktiker inom ramen för ett vetenskapligt studium. Boken är en gratis e-publikation under en Creative Commons-licens. Framför allt är den tänkt som kurslitteratur eller kompletterande kurslitteratur för studenter i ämnet religionsvetenskap vid högskolor och universitet. Dock kan även en intresserad allmänhet här få en bild av religionsvetenskap som ett intellektuellt stimulerande, fascinerande och, inte minst, högaktuellt ämne i dagens samhälle.
