"Mapping the Muslim Atlantic," co-authored by Daniel Nillson DeHanas and Peter Mandaville, provides an overview of key links formed between U.S. and U.K. Muslims, including networks of various Islamic traditions first built in the 1950s and 1960s as well as more recent networks of political solidarity and professional ties. The report identifies three core themes in contemporary transatlantic Muslim discourse: gender, race, and the securitization of Islam and Muslim communities. The authors consider how the terms of these discussions differ on both sides of the Atlantic and key points of convergence and divergence. It was published as part of the Muslim Atlantic project supported by the British Council’s “Bridging Voices” program, King’s College London, and George Mason University.
