Further Details
Abstract The common nomenclature of ethnicity, race and colour has been found wanting in theorising and dealing with the Muslim presence in Britain. This study of 24 prominent British Muslims - including political, policy and academic/ intellectual 'elite' – explores the making and representation of Muslim identity in Britain. We explore this through three considerations: Muslimness as a 'master status'; leadership and representation in relation to British Muslims; and the public performance of Muslimness during 'key moments'.
