Situating Muslim Geographies

Situating Muslim Geographies

(p.171) Chapter 10 Situating Muslim Geographies
Muslims in Britain

Peter Hopkins

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines Muslim geographies. Muslim geographies have principally been geographies of contestation and conflict. The 1960s was considered as the start of the secularisation of the world in terms of the fact that religious thinking, institutions and practices were observed to have lost their social significance. The 1990s and even more so the 2000s have become a growth period for the geographies of religion, including Muslim geographies. The conflicts surrounding places are a barometer of state-religion relationships, inter-religious relationships and intra-religious relationships. Muslim geographies have been influential in shaping an important part of geographical enquiry. Some of the Muslim geographies have made vital innovative contributions and brought to bear original geographical perspectives in understanding religion. It can be stated that even while British Muslim geographies have contributed significantly to an understanding of contemporary British social dynamics, there remain many absent religions and absent geographies.

Keywords:   Muslim geographies, secularisation, religion, British Muslim geographies, British social dynamics
