About this book

This edited collection brings together international leading scholars to explore why the education of Muslim students is globally associated with radicalisation, extremism and securitisation. The chapters address a wide range of topics, including neoliberal education policy and globalization; faith-based communities and Islamophobia; social mobility and inequality; securitisation and counter terrorism; and shifting youth representations. Educational sectors from a wide range of national settings are discussed, including the US, China, Turkey, Canada, Germany and the UK; this international focus enables comparative insights into emerging identities and subjectivities among young Muslim men and women across different educational institutions, and introduces the reader to the global diversity of a new generation of Muslim students who are creatively engaging with a rapidly changing twenty-first century education system.  The book will appeal to those with an interest in race/ethnicity, Islamophobia, faith and multiculturalism, identity, and broader questions of education and social and global change.

About the authors

Máirtín Mac an Ghaill is Professor of Education at Newman University, UK.  He is the author of The Making of Men: Masculinities, Sexuality  and Schooling.  He has published several books and articles with Chris Haywood, including Men and Masculinities and Education and Masculinities: Social, Cultural and Global Transformations.  He is currently researching Muslim men and masculinities.
Chris Haywood is Senior Lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies at Newcastle University, UK. His main interest is men and masculinities, and he is currently exploring the emergence of new sexual cultures with a particular focus on anonymous sex with strangers.  This is part of a broader study on men’s dating practices with a particular focus on mobile dating, online dating and speed dating.  Overall, he is interested in pushing the conceptual limits of masculinity models to consider ways of gendering that are not reducible to masculinity or femininity.

Reviews

“A fresh, focused attempt to explore Muslim identities by going beyond old tropes such as  ‘diversity’ and ‘extremism’. Mac an Ghaill and Haywood have drawn together writers who understand race and faith in terms of living, changing relationships and who are rethinking the how education is implicated in today’s moral panics over Muslim youth.” (Paul Warmington, Centre for Research in Race and Education, University of Birmingham, UK)
