Birmingham-City-Centre2I had the pleasure today of presenting some of my research findings to students from the University of Birmingham’s Theology department as part of the ‘Believing in the City’ programme. Talking about Islamophobia, it was great to see them interested and engaged about the way in which Islamophobia manifests itself differently in the city of Birmingham from those areas surrounding the city, the Black Country in particular.

As part of this, I agreed to post some links to research undertaken that the students themselves might be interested in. Here they are – I hope you find them interesting:
