CRIC Book Launch: Politics of Modern Muslim Subjectivities: Islam, Youth and Social Acitivism in the Middle East

On the occasion of the publication of Politics of Modern Muslim Subjectivities, CRIC invites to a panel discussion about state policies, social conflict and Islamic activism after the “Arab Spring.” Based on case studies from Egypt and Jordan, Politics of Modern Muslim Subjectivities: Islam, Youth and Social Activism in the Middle East (NewYork: Palgrave MacMillan) gives insights in the social transformation out of which the Arab revolts emerged.

The book shows the importance of Islamic activism as both a means in negotiating social order and in the construction of individual identities. In departing from this finding, Mervat Hatem and Morten Valbjørn explore the different ways in which the regimes in Egypt and Jordan have tried to contain social conflict and the Islamic movement after the “Arab Spring.” We will start with three short presentations and then move on to a discussion of the current situation with the audience.
