SHORT COURSE - Muslims in Britain:Uncovering the Past and Debating the Future
This course will explore the recent story of Muslim migration and settlement in Britain within the framework of historical links often termed as ‘Islam’ and the ‘West’.
This one-day course offers a well-rounded and inter-disciplinary introduction to a range of questions and predicaments – in areas such as law, media, gender, education and policy – that have emerged as Muslim presence has increased in Britain. Discussions around the historical, ideological and economic roots of Muslim identity formation will constitute a substantial part of the course.
The course will consider Muslim historical traditions and Western cultural frameworks, to explore the different ideas of what it means to be a 'Muslim in the West'. These explorations will serve as a basis for debating the future directions of Muslims in Britain.
