The Poverty of Moral Answers to Political Questions: On Perceptions of Islam in the Wake of ISIS

Recent weeks and months have witnessed a frustrated sense of déjà vu on the part of many Islamic Studies scholars in North America and  Western Europe. In the wake of 11 September 2001, scholars of Islam were frequently called upon to explain the marginality of al-Qa'ida’s bellicose interpretation of the sources of the tradition and to argue against the substitution of this marginal vision for the whole of Islam. In his influential book Good Muslim, Bad Muslim, anthropologist and historian Mahmood Mamdani articulated a comprehensive critique of “culture talk” about Islam, which seeks to account for Muslim politics on the basis of some ahistorical “cultural” essence. ...

Tunisia: The Victory of Secularism over Islamism?

Champions of modernization and secularization theory, in Arab and Western media alike, have hailed the victory of Nidaa Tounes  (the Call of Tunisia), a conservative patchwork movement composed of ancien régime figures, technocrats, and leftists, united under the vague banners of Bourguibism and anti-Islamism.
