We use discourse theory as a frame for considering the role of…

As a result, many educators endure demoralization, teach…

El-Sherif, Lucy – Curriculum Inquiry, 2016
Theorizations on Western Muslim identity that are multi-layered and grounded in actual Western Muslim experiences are hard to find. Two exceptions to this are "The Road to Mecca" by Muhammad Asad (1954/2005), and "Islam is a Foreign Country" by Zareena Grewal (2014), rich texts that span across six decades. Asad's classic…
