Alternative Performativity of Muslimness: The Intersection of Race, Gender, Religion, and Migration

Alternative Performativity of Muslimness: The Intersection of Race, Gender, Religion, and Migration

English | ISBN: 3319440500 | 2017 | 242 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

The book highlights issues related to the construction of gender in Africa and African identity politics. It explores the limitations of the constructed category of "African Muslim woman" in West Yorkshire. Amina Alrasheed Nayel uses Black feminist epistemology along with postcolonial, feminist, and critical race theory to examine the multiple identities that Sudanese women negotiate in the UK.

The diverse settings of Islam and Islamic culture, circumscribed around issues of performativity of Islam and identity construction in the diasporic space are unpacked in this volume. In addition, this work analyzes specific practices and performances, starting with the multifaceted nature of Islam and the problematic concepts of "Sunni/Sufi," "Muslim woman," "race," and "blackness." The book reveals that exile, nostalgia, and racial/ethnic differences within Islam and the wider UK community underpin the performativity of Muslimness of the Sudanese women living in West Yorkshire, and reiterates the importance of moving beyond the homogeneity of the idea of "Muslim woman" towards investigating the complexities of this group.
