In Britain’s highly politicised social climate in the aftermath of the 7/7 London bombings, “Young British Muslims…” provides an in-depth understanding of British Muslim Identity through the following social constructs: migration history, family settlement, socio-economic status, religion and culture, and the wider societal environment.
Dr. Kabir was a visiting fellow (Aug. 2009 – July 2011) in Islam in the West program at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University, USA. Her current research project is titled, “An Understanding of the Identity of Muslim Youths and Young Adults in the United States of America.” Nahid Kabir is also the author of Muslims in Australia: Immigration, Race Relations and Cultural History (London: Routledge 2005).
