Beyond Modernity: Critical Perspectives on Islam, Tradition and Power was published from Rowman & Littlefield Publishers in November 2023. In this seminar, the editors will discuss the initial impetus behind the edited volume. One key objective was the questioning of Eurocentric approaches that reproduce the binary of modernity and Islam. The editors will also emphasize the proposal of post-Eurocentric alternative approaches in the volume chapters with a particular focus on the existence of a variety of contexts overlapping with common frames of reference within Muslim societies.
