Call for Proposals: Islam of the Global West

A New Book Series by Bloomsbury Press

Islam of the Global West is a pioneering series that examines Islamic beliefs,
practices, discourses, communities, and instituions that have emerged from ‘the
Global West.’ The geographical and intellectual framing of the Global West
reflects both the role played by the interactions between people from diverse
religions and cultures in the development of Western ideals and institutions in
the modern era, and the globalizations of these very ideals and institutions. In
creating an intellectual space where works of scholarship on European and North
American Muslims enter into conversation with one another, the series promotes the publication of
theoretically informed and empirically grounded research in these areas. By
bringing the rapidly growing research on Muslims in European and North American
societies, ranging from the United States and France to Portugal and Albania,
into conversation with the conceptual framing of the Global West, this ambitious
series aims to reimagine the modern world and develop new analytical categories
and historical narratives that highlight the complex relationships and rivalries
that have shaped the multicultural, poly‐religious character of Europe and North
America.
