The making and representation of Muslim identity in Britain: conversations with British Muslim elites
Ahmad, Waqar I. U. and Evergeti, Venetia (2010) The making and representation of Muslim identity in Britain: conversations with British Muslim elites. Ethnic and Racial Studies, 33 (10). pp. 1697-1717. ISSN 0141-9870
The common nomenclature of ethnicity, race and colour has been found wanting in theorising and dealing with the Muslim presence in Britain. This study of 24 prominent British Muslims - including political, policy and academic/intellectual ‘elite’ – explores the making and representation of Muslim identity in Britain. We explore this through three considerations: Muslimness as a ‘master status’; leadership and representation in relation to British Muslims; and the public performance of Muslimness during ‘key moments’.
