About this event

CALL FOR PAPERS – Deadline: Saturday, May 11th at midnight.

We are thrilled to announce a collaborative conference between the Muslims in Britain Research Network (MBRN), Everyday Muslim Heritage and Archive Initiative (EMHAI), and the University of Westminster, which will be hosted in the Westminster Voices series. This unique partnership aims to bring together scholars, practitioners, and communities to delve into the multifaceted histories of Islam and Muslims in Britain from the 1800s onwards.

Muslims have been a part of Britain’s landscape for centuries, their presence evolving and shaping the nation’s cultural fabric. From the earliest communities in the 19th century to the transformative period of post-1960s migration, the narratives of Muslims in Britain are rich and diverse, reflecting a tapestry of experiences, identities, and contributions.

Conference Themes:

  • Intersectionality in historical Muslim identity in Britain
  • Post- and de-colonial approaches within history
  • Contemporary impact and influence of historical British Muslims
  • Experiences of racism and prejudice in early British Muslims
  • Histories of Muslim Organisations and Institutions
  • Contestations in ‘British Muslim’ identity
  • Socio-political activism to date
  • Significant ‘British Muslim’ public figures
  • Recent books/publications on the history of Islam and Muslims in Britain


Be part of this enriching exploration into the histories of Islam and Muslims in Britain. Whether you’re an academic, researcher, practitioner, or community member, your perspectives are valuable in fostering knowledge exchange and understanding.
