Abstract: Publisher's description: Use of the term Islamophobia is today both inexorable and controversial. "Thinking through Islamophobia" offers a series of critical engagements with the concept, its history and deployment, and the phenomena that it seeks to marshal. In an original and pioneering collection of essays twenty-eight contributors hailing from diverse disciplinary and geographical backgrounds draw on their expertise to map out the tensions between the concept and the phenomena as they are played out across different contexts and continents. Extending the discussion of Islamophobia beyond its commonplace focus on the West and staking a claim for the continuing relevance and critical purchase of Islamophobia in struggles for justice, "Thinking through Islamophobia" locates the polemical debates on Islamophobia within wider cultural and political mobilizations engendered by the 'Muslim question'.
