Abstract: This seminar will bring together findings, perspectives and methods from the Arts & Humanities and the Social Sciences on ‘everyday lived Islam’ (particularly but not exclusively in Europe). We encourage presentations of research on how Muslims indwell their religion and make sense of Islam on a day to day basis. We are interested in concrete practices and identities, commitments and convictions: what is characteristic of daily Muslim life? What forms the reality of Islam for young people? What sort of generational change have occurred? When, if and how does Islam matter for Muslims – and what other identities and aspects are relevant? As contemporary life is constituted by many different aspects, sentiments and domains which cross the boundaries of public/private, we encourage research which discusses these complexities, and reflects on methods and approaches and/or findings, concepts and theories.
