GRAMNet Seminar

Muslims in Scotland: The Making of Community in a Post-9/11 World
Dr Stefano Bonino

Wednesday 24th January, 3.30 - 4.30pm (tea/coffee and cakes served from 3.15pm)
Yudowitz Lecture Theatre, Wolfson Medical School Building, University of Glasgow

Stefano Bonino will talk about his recent monograph Muslims in Scotland: The Making of Community in a Post-9/11 World (2016). The book argues that the experience of being a Muslim in Scotland today is shaped by the global and national post-9/11 shift in public attitudes towards Muslims, and is infused by the particular social, cultural and political Scottish ways of dealing with minorities, diversity and integration. It explores the settlement and development of Muslim communities in Scotland, highlighting the ongoing changes in their structure and the move towards a Scottish experience of being Muslim. This experience combines a sense of civic and social belonging to Scotland with a religious and ideological commitment to Islam.
