Islam and Secularity : The Future of Europe's Public Sphere Paperback / softback
by Nilufer Gole
Part of the Public Planet Books series
In Islam and Secularity Nilufer Goele takes on two pressing issues: the transforming relationship between Islam and Western secular modernity and the impact of the Muslim presence in Europe.
Goele shows how the visibility of Islamic practice in the European public sphere unsettles narratives of Western secularism.
As mutually constitutive, Islam and secularism permeate each other, the effects of which play out in embodied and aesthetic practices and are accompanied by fear, anxiety, and violence.
In this timely book, Goele illuminates the recent rethinking of secularism and religion, of modernity and resistance to it, of the public significance of sexuality, and of the shifting terrain of identity in contemporary Europe.
