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.
