Islamism and Arab Cultural Expression

A major project on Islamism is now archived on the Centre’s website. Visit our new page on the Islamism project to find an overview of ‘Islamism and Arab Cultural Expression’ and links to the Lancaster University website presentingĀ the initial archiving and preliminary analysis project, entitled Islamism in Arab Fiction and Film, 1947 to the Present, which was funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) UK under the auspices of the Religion & Society programme, Feb. 2010 to Feb. 2011. You will also be able to link to Ā an open-access electronic catalogue of over a hundred texts that reflect Islamism in terms of theme, context, organising consciousness, aspect of characterisation and/or plotting.

We are pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of a major edited collection, entitled Islamism and Arab Cultural Expression (Routledge, 2014), which analyses Islamism in a range of creative and other cultural forms (fiction; feature films; television series; television reportage; the press; fine arts; rap; new media) produced in Arab contexts in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
