MBRN Panel Proposal for the British Association of Islamic Studies Conference, University of London, 13-15th April 2015
Academic interest in Muslims in Britain has grown significantly over the last decade and more. This has included the branching of this area into a variety of very different disciplines, ranging from Islamic Studies through to Political Studies. Yet alongside this flourishing of interest, there is a continuing need for empirical research that is rooted in the methodologies of sociology, anthropology and religious studies. MBRN is therefore proposing a panel for the BRAIS annual conference in April 2015– this follows two very successful MBRN panels at the inaugural BRAIS conference earlier this year. The aim of the panel will be to showcase empirical research from these disciplinary perspectives, looking at the everyday experiences of Muslims in Britain.
