The forbidden modern : civilization and veiling by Nilüfer Göle( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The forbidden modern, prominent Turkish scholar Nilüfer Göle examines the complex relationships among modernity, religion, and gender relations in the Middle East. Her focus is on the factors that influence young women pursuing university educations in Turkey to adopt seemingly fundamentalist Islamist traditions, such as veiling, and the complex web of meanings attributed to these gender-separating practices. Veiling, a politicized practice that conceptually forces people to choose between the "modern" and the "backward," provides an insightful way of looking at the contemporary Islam-West conflict, shedding light on the recent rise of Islamist fundamentalism in many countries and providing insight into what is a more complex phenomenon than is commonly portrayed in accounts by Western journalists. Gole's sociological approach, employing a number of personal interviews, allows for both a detailed case study of these young Turkish women who are turning to the tenets of fundamental Islamist gender codes, and for a broader critique of Eurocentrism and the academic literature regarding the construction of meaning. Both perspectives serve as a springboard for the launching of theoretical innovations into feminist, religious, cultural, and area studies
Islam and public controversy in Europe by Nilüfer Göle( )

20 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The public visibility of Islam is becoming increasingly controversial throughout European countries. With case studies drawn from France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, this book examines a range of public issues, including mosque construction, ritual slaughter, Sharia councils and burqa bans, addressing the question of 'Islamic difference' in public life outside the confines of established normative discourses that privilege freedom of religion, minority rights or multiculturalism. Acknowledging the creative role of dissent, it explores the manner in which public controversies unsettle the religious-secular divide and reshape European norms in the domains of aesthetics, individual freedom, animal rights and law. Developing an innovative conceptual framework and elaborating the notion of controversy as a methodological tool, Islam and Public Controversy in Europe draws our attention to the processes of interaction, confrontation and mutual transformation, thereby opening up a new horizon for rethinking difference and pluralism in Europe. As such, it will appeal to scholars across the social sciences with interests in religion, integration, cultural difference and the public sphere
Islam and secularity : the future of Europe's public sphere by Nilüfer Göle( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Islam and Secularity Nilufer Gole takes on two pressing issues: the transforming relationship between Islam and Western secular modernity and the impact of the Muslim presence in Europe. Gole shows how the visibility of Islamic practice in the European public sphere unsettles narratives of Western secularism. As mutually constitutive, Islam and secularism permeate each other, the effects of which play out in embodied and aesthetic practices and are accompanied by fear, anxiety, and violence. In this timely book, Gole illuminates the recent rethinking of secularism and religion, of modernity and resistance to it, of the public significance of sexuality, and of the shifting terrain of identity in contemporary Europe."--Publisher's description
The daily lives of Muslims : Islam and public confrontation in contemporary Europe by Nilüfer Göle( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many in the West, Islam has become a byword for 'terrorism'. From 9/11 to the Paris attacks, our headlines are dominated by images of violence and extremism. Now, as the Western world struggles to cope with the refugee crisis, there is a growing obsession with the issue of Muslim integration. Those Muslims who fail to assimilate are branded the 'enemy within', with their communities said to provide a fertile breeding ground for jihadists. Such narratives, though, fail to take into account the actual lives of most Muslims living in the West, fixating instead on a minority of violent extremists. In 'The Daily Lives of Muslims', Nilüfer Göle provides an urgently needed corrective to this distorted image of Islam. Engaging with Muslim communities in 21 cities across Europe where controversies over 'integration' have arisen - from the banning of the veil in France to debates surrounding Sharia law in the UK - the book brings the voices of this neglected majority into the debate. In doing so, Göle uncovers a sincere desire among many Muslims to participate in the public sphere, a desire which is too often stifled by Western insecurity and attempts to suppress the outward signs of religious difference
Islam in Europe : the lure of fundamentalism and the allure of cosmopolitanism by Nilüfer Göle( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Islam in Europe is a book full of striking images: the assassination of and the death threats against artists and intellectuals; violent demonstrations demanding Sharia law for Europe; and acts of terrorism, Also detailed are European political initiatives and, in some cases, new laws that forbid the wearing of the burka in public spaces, the ban on minarets in Switzerland, and other efforts to keep Western culture "pure." But there is another reality, as Nilufer Gole describes it from her own life experience: Muslims who are politicians in European parliaments; scholars teaching in European universities; and artists who use this creative intercultural exchange as a theme in their art. More visible are the hundreds of thousands of students, workers, merchants, and professionals who participate in every aspect of public life without concealing their heritage. Gole sees the best hope for a modern and European Islam in the Muslim women who--in contrast to the men--demonstrate their commitment to their heritage by wearing head scarfs while participating in modern Western life. In manifesting their professional and public experience in their own communities, they become the agents of change and modernism. Gole thus sees European Islam as "feminine," in contrast to the male-dominated traditional Islam. -- Publisher description

Islam in Sicht : der Auftritt von Muslimen im öffentlichen Raum( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in German and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das "Coming-out" der Muslime im öffentlichen Raum, das ungewohnte Sichtbarwerden von Religion im säkularen Staat erregt Aufsehen. "Islam in Sicht" erhellt anhand von Fallstudien junger Forscher aus der Türkei, Iran und Europa, wie heutige islamische Bewegungen mit eigenen Cafés und Romanen, Filmen und Wanderpredigern an die Öffentlichkeit treten, Frauen mit Kopftüchern Alltagspolitik betreiben und die iranische Jugend auf der Straße gegen die Tugenddiktatur aufbegehrt. Einführende Essays der Herausgeber streiten mit Hannah Arendt für eine über Habermas hinausgehende Theorie der Öffentlichkeit und Privatheit, die auch islamischen Verhältnissen gerecht wird, Beiträge von Shmuel N. Eisenstadt und Charles Taylor runden den Band ab
Europäischer Islam Muslime im Alltag by Nilüfer Göle( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Über den Islam wird viel gesprochen und publiziert, aber die anerkannte Soziologin Nilüfer Göle hat in diesem Buch erstmals das Thema aus einer gesamteuropäischen Perspektive und mit Fokus auf den Alltag der Menschen beleuchtet. Sie hat vier Jahre lang in Deutschland, Frankreich, England und anderen Ländern zahlreiche Menschen befragt, was den Islam in Europa ausmacht. Gerade in Zeiten von Terror scheinen die Konfrontationslinien zwischen dem Islam und der europäischen Welt härter zu werden, aber dieser Eindruck trügt. Wie Nilüfer Göle zeigt, ist der Islam längst selbstverständlicher Bestandteil unseres ? gemeinsamen ? modernen Alltagslebens geworden. Es entstehen neue Identitäten und Formen des Zusammenlebens und natürlich auch neue Konflikte, wie etwa im Karikaturenstreit, die aber durchaus kreativ gelöst werden. In diesem Prozess erfindet sich Europa neu, eine Entwicklung, die kein Fundamentalist aufhalten kann. (Quelle:

1 edition published in 2001 in German and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kemal Atatürk, the father of modern Turkey, proclaimed the republic in 1923 and wanted to completely westernize his country. Thus the religious turban for men and the veil for women were prohibited. These clothing regulations are still vadlid today for female students and civil servants. Using portraits of a variety of women, the current discussion about headscarves in Turkey is shown from many standpoints."--Container

En-quête de l'islam européen( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: L'Islam a acquis une visibilité dans les sphères publiques européennes tant au travers de nouveaux symboles que de nouvelles figures publiques, masculines et féminines, religieuses et séculières. L'entrée de l'islam dans la sphère publique suscite des débats autour de la construction des mosquées, de la finance islamique, des lieux de piété, de loisirs, de l'art et des lieux de sépulture. Dans cet ouvrage, les auteurs explorent les notions de visibilité/invisibilité de l'islam européen. En mettant l'islam, l'Europe et l'espace public au cœur de leurs propos, les contributeurs empruntent les outils théoriques, les notions clés et la méthodologie de la sociologie de Nilüfer Göle. La notion d'espace public se révèle être heuristiquement féconde pour en-quêter les modes d'"apparition" des musulmans dans la vie publique en Europe, dans différents domaines de vie, allant de l'esthétique à l'intime, en passant par la consommation, la culture, le droit et le savoir
