British Muslims New Directions in Islamic Thought, Creativity and Activism

Heftet / 2018 / Engelsk
A new generation of Muslims - activists, academics, religious scholars and professionals - are drawing on contemporary reformist thinking emerging from outside their parents' or grandparents' tradition and are using this to inform their activism. This positive new thinking is traced as it impacts and shapes the burgeoning field of Muslim women's activism, the formation of religious leaders, what is to count as `Muslim politics', the dynamics of de-radicalisation and what has been dubbed the `New Muslim Cool' in music, fashion and culture. A collaboration between two academics, one Muslim and one not, the book gives a distinctive take on understanding Islam and Muslims in Britain today.

How is the new generation of British Muslims navigating relations across three distinct religious and social worlds? This book looks at how they are balancing expectations from traditional Islam imported from their ancestral homeland, expressions of Islam drawn from across the global Muslim community the Ummah and from Britain itself.
