Abstract:

"Alef is for Allah is the first groundbreaking study of the emotional space occupied by children in modern Islamic societies. Focusing primarily on visual representations of children from modern Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan, the book examines these materials to investigate important concepts, ranging from innocence, cuteness, gender, virtue and devotion to community, nationhood, violence and sacrifice. In addition to exploring a topic that has never been studied comparatively before, Alef is for Allah extends the boundaries of scholarship on emotion, religion, and visual culture, providing unique insight into Islam as it is lived and experienced in the modern world."--Provided by publisher
