What sort of discursive traps to we fall into when talking about ‘Islam’ or ‘the West’? How might we reframe our discussions with a critical humanist approach? In this episode, Khurram Hussain joins Andie Alexander to discuss his recent book, The Muslim Speaks (Zed Books, 2020). Hussain unpacks issues of binary discourses about “the Muslims world” and “the west” and explores the benefits of critically engaging Islam in a way that works to re-politicize rather than de-politicize Muslim voices by taking seriously the human-focused study of religion.
