About the Author
Nilüfer Göle is professor of sociology at the École des Hautes Études in Paris and a leading authority on the political movement of today's educated, urbanized, religious Muslim women. A prominent scholar, she is the author of Modern Mahrem (The Forbidden Modern, 1991) which has been translated into English, French, German and Spanish. Through personal interviews, Göle has developed detailed case studies of young Turkish women who are turning to the tenets of fundamental Islamic gender codes. Her sociological approach has also produced a broader critique of Eurocentrism with regard to emerging Islamic identities at the close of the 20th century. She has explored the specific topic of veiling, as well as the complexities of living in a multicultural world. She published Interpénétrations: L'Islam et l'Europe (2005), and co-edited Islam in Public (2006), a study on the relations between Islam and the Western world that privileges analysis of micro processes by focusing upon emerging Muslim profiles and practices in public life.

New Public Faces of Islam
A Workshop Study

İslamın Yeni Kamusal Yüzleri
Bir Atölye Çalışması

Contents
New Public Faces of Islam is a multi-faceted analysis of the new visibility –new faces, discourses and life-styles– that Islam has acquired over the past few years. This gradual change in the political function and public appearance of Islam can be traced in public spaces such as television, concert halls, public beaches, festivals and non-profit organizations. We see that the old relative anonymity is giving way to individuation and clearer, more discernable portraits. Focusing on a diverse set of research areas, the authors in this edition inquire into Islam’s new visibility. A thought-provoking study by internationally renowned sociologist Nilufer Göle and her students, New Public Faces of Islam stresses once again the value of collective work in the social sciences.
