Jade Gayles Week 8 Dis1L Reading #1 Charles Hirschkind. 2001. “The Ethics of Listening: Cassette-Sermon Audition in Contemporary English.” American Ethnologist 28 , no. 3: 623-49 In this article Charles Hirschkind focuses on listening to tape recorded sermons among contemporary Muslims in Egypt in order to reveal traditions of the cassette as a technology for self improvement. Hirschkind focused his fieldwork study in Cairo, where recorded sermons of popular islamic preachers are sold by different local distributors and listened to by people anywhere and everywhere in the city. The tapes are seen as an ability to enhance their understanding of the Friday mosque- used as an addition to the mosque rather than a replacement and giving a sense of tranquility and cleansing of the heart. 1. Why do you think Hirschkind incorporated the egyptian language parenthesized next to the english language? 2. Why is cassette technology more effective in Muslims of Egypt than rereading the Quran several times a day?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
