Islam in the City: U of T literary magazine shares students' stories

A new University of Toronto literary magazine is empowering students to share their stories of what it means to be Muslim in Toronto –  everything from takes on casual streetwear and evening shifts at local coffee houses to Islam among the city’s bubble tea shops and sports bars.

Published by the Institute of Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Arts & Science, Islam in the City gives students a forum to explore the complexities and nuances of everything that falls under the broad term “Islamic.” “We want to showcase that Muslims don’t just experience life as Muslims in the mosque, [but] that we’re just as likely to find Muslims and Islamic moments at the CN Tower, a cafe or the movie theatre,” explains Andrew Mackin, Islam in the City’s editor-in-chief. “We want to challenge the dominant narrative of what Islam is.”
