A former lecturer at the University of Ain Chams in Egypt, her current research focuses on the construction of otherness in Islamism; the analysis of the discourse of the contemporary Islamic fundamentalist movement: its theorists, its dogmatic foundations and its socio-political impact; Islamic jihad: media discourse, theory and praxis; stereotypes (Islamic radicalism/West and vice versa) as well as the challenges of integrating Muslim communities into immigrant lands. She recently published (2014) “La réception de la Charte des valeurs québécoises par le leadership de la communauté musulmane chiite au Québec. Enjeux de citoyenneté et d’intégration”, in M.

Epistemological and methodological issues in studies on violence in the name of Islam (Montreal)

This group aims to provide food for thought on the following questions: Are the available conceptual and epistemological methods and tools adequate enough to decipher the specific and complex discourses, practices and developments related to the use of violence in the name of Islam? Isn’t new research imperative to enrich our understanding of this phenomenon, to redress perspectives, to fill current gaps and to deconstruct widespread prejudices?
