Spatialized Islamophobia

Kawtar Najib’s 2021 book Spatialized Islamophobia demonstrates the spatialized and multi-scalar nature of Islamophobia in two important European capitals – Paris and London. It also argues that Islamophobia is also a process that occurs at various interrelated spatial scales: globe, nation, urban, neighbourhood and body (and mind). By using self-reflexivity, the author raises important questions that may have hampered studies of ‘Spatialized Islamophobia’, focusing in particular on the favoured methodologies which too often remain qualitative, as well as on the whiteness of the discipline of geography itself. The book is available from Routledge. Highlights: You can get the full ebook from Taylor & Francis. This book was referenced in the People’s Review of Prevent.
