This book combines media studies and linguistics with theories of national and supranational identity to offer an interdisciplinary approach to the study of European identity/ies and news discourses. Taking representations of `Islamist terrorism' and Turkey's accession to the European Union as case studies, it analyses the discursive construction of supranational European identity through the discursive distinction of `Us' and `Them'. Moreover, it compares the media's representations of the `Other' in different socio-political moments in Europe- from times of European integration (2004-5) to the European dystopia (2015-16) through the discourse analysis of specific Greek, British and French newspapers. This timely work synthesizes classic argumentative approaches and Gramscian thought in the study of media discourses by focusing on the Aristotelian concept of topos and introducing the concept of `hegemonic knowledge'. This pioneering work will appeal to scholars across the fields of linguistics, social anthropology, European politics, and media studies.

This book aims to bring Muslim theology into the present day. Rather than a purely academic pursuit, Modern Muslim Theology argues that theology is a creative process and discusses how the Islamic tradition can help contemporary practitioners negotiate their relationships with God, with one another, and with the rest of creation.

This book analyses the attitudes of Muslim citizens toward international and regional actors. In essence, the project examines whether Muslim public opinion is in favor of the current international order and if there is an ideal type of international governance perceived by Muslim citizens. The author connects the analysis to the literature of international public opinion and to the research on social legitimacy of international and global governance. It is ideal for scholarly audiences interested in Islamic, International and Global Governance Studies.

"À l'heure actuelle et à notre sens, le monde arabo-musulman, plus particulièrement les pays touchés par le printemps arabe, se trouve dans une situation de bouleversement comparable à celle qu'avait connue l'Europe à l'époque de la Réforme et des guerres de religion. Ce contexte peut-il mener à "un ensemble de solutions radicales" ou à une "véritable transformation culturelle et sociale", c'est-à-dire à un aggiornamento régulant le lien entre le religieux et le politique et permettant de mieux vivre ensemble dans la paix ? Pour répondre à cette question, ce livre compare d'abord l'organisation de la société dans la pensée occidentale et dans la pensée arabo-musulmane. Il analyse les conceptions de l'espace public, de la légitimité du pouvoir politique et des sources de la légifération selon les courants intellectuels réformistes et libéralistes humanistes musulmans modernes. Il dresse ensuite une généalogie initiale des nouveaux acteurs et des perspectives émergentes dans ces deux courants afin d'en identifier les évolutions et les ruptures. Inspirée de ces dernières, cette recherche présente enfin une approche procédurale d'un aggiornamento musulman."--Page 4 of cover.

Forty years ago, as a young scholar in Islamic Studies at the University of Alberta, Al Rashid's Muslims welcomed my queries, tolerated my ignorance, and joyfully opened their homes and their hearts. Edmonton's Al Rashid Mosque has played a key role in Islam's Canadian development. Founded by Muslims from Lebanon, it has grown into a vibrant community fully integrated into Canada's cultural mosaic. The mosque continues to be a concrete expression of social good, a symbol of a proud Muslim-Canadian identity. Al Rashid Mosque provides a welcome introduction to the ethics and values of homegrown Muslims. The book traces the mosque's role in education and community leadership, and celebrates the numerous contributions of Muslim Canadians in Edmonton and across Canada. Written to mark the 75th anniversary of the mosque's opening in 1938, Al Rashid Mosque is a timely and important volume of Islamic and Canadian history.
