Abstract: This papers starts from the ‘turn to agency’ (Mahmood 2005) that has marked the scholarship on female religious agency. I will analyse the thick relationship between this turn and the study of Islam and gendered subjectivities, and this reflection will provide a ground to elaborate a set of methodological reflections in relation to the study of agency and subjectivities. A central questions I will ask in this respect, is how the study of female pious agencies and subjectivities in Islamic contexts has opened new ways of conceptualizing agency and subjectivity, and how these new ways of thinking impact Sociology of religion.
