Islam in British Media Discourses

By Laurens de Rooij

Publisher: Manchester University Press (May 2020)

Ever wondered what non-muslims actually do with media stories about Islam and how it relates to Islamophobia? How is society affected by repeated discussions of Islam and Muslims in print and television news?

Media reporting on Islam and Muslims commonly relate stories about terrorism, violence, or the lack of integration with western values and society.

Building on extensive fieldwork interviews and focus groups, Laurens de Rooij argues that individuals negotiate media reports to fit their existing outlook on Islam and Muslims. Non-Muslim responses to these reports, de Rooij argues, are not only (re)productions of local and personal contextuality, but are co-dependent and co-productive to the reports themselves.
