Seminar Series - Intersections of 'race', class and gender in the social and political identifications of young Muslims in England

Date: 24 October 2012 Time: 12.30 - 2.00 p.m.

Venue: B.89 County South

Dr Farzana Shain

Senior Lecturer in Education, Keele University

Intersections of 'race', class and gender in the social and political identifications of young Muslims in England

In this seminar I will draw on a recently published book - The New folk Devils: Muslim boys and education in England ( 2011: Trentham) to report an account of the boys' social and political identifications in a post 9/11 context. In contrast to dominant policy conceptions that focus on radicalisation, segregation and educational underachievement, and recent public concerns about 'sexual grooming; the seminar will emphasise intersections of 'race', religion, gender and class in the boys' strategic take-up of identities in the context of their schooling and local neighbourhood experiences.
