Ouvrage : Les sens du Halal. Une norme dans un marché mondial (CNRS Éditions)

Les sens du Halal. Une norme dans un marché mondial, sous la direction de Florence Bergeaud-Blackler, Editions du CNRS, 2015, 340 p.

Présentation de l’ouvrageles-sens-du-halal-

En Europe, selon l’acception courante, le terme « halal » qualifie « la viande d’un animal tué selon les rites, qui peut être consommée par les musulmans ». Cette définition circonscrit le halal aux nourritures carnées destinées à une population définie par son appartenance religieuse. Or, on observe depuis quelques années un élargissement sémantique de ce terme que l’on accole à d’autres produits et services, tels que les crédits halal, les hôtels « sharia-compatibles », ou encore à des comportements et des institutions tels que le mariage, la sexualité, etc. Plus qu’un élargissement de la gamme des produits qualifiés de « halal », on assiste à une extension du sens qui se traduit par une substantivation du halal. Le qualificatif qui désignait des actions ou des nourritures qui n’avaient pas été interdites, se fait substantif pour désigner désormais la seule positivité de la norme et renvoyer à un « espace normatif » autonome, au point que l’on peut parler, par exemple, de « vivre dans le halal ». Quels sont les mécanismes théologiques, économiques et sociaux à l’œuvre dans la constitution de cet espace normatif auquel des musulmans réfèrent leur conduite ? Quelles sont les logiques qui sous-tendent la halalisation des choses, des conduites, des environnements par lesquelles se constitue, se maintient, ou se transgresse la frontière entre le permis et l’interdit ? »

Cet ouvrage dirigé par Florence Bergeaud-Blackler, chargée de recherche CNRS à l’IREMAM (et animatrice de ce carnet), fait suite au colloque « Vous avez dit halal ? » organisé au Collège de France en Novembre 2013, cofinancé par la MMSH, l’IISMM, Marie Curie IEF. Il rassemble des contributions d’historiens, d’anthropologues, de sociologues et de juristes qui, à partir d’exemples variés, proposent de réfléchir à la façon dont on est passé d’une série d’interdits religieux à un espace normatif.

The Oxford Handbook of American Islam by Yvonne Haddad & Jane I.Smith

 

The Oxford Handbook of American Islam

Edited by Yvonne Y. Haddad and Jane I. Smith

Islam has been part of the increasingly complex American religious scene for well over a century, and was brought into more dramatic focus by the attacks of September 11, 2001. American Islam is practiced by a unique blend of immigrants and American-born Muslims. The immigrants have come from all corners of the world; they include rich and poor, well-educated and illiterate, those from upper and lower classes as well as economic and political refugees. The community’s diversity has been enhanced by the conversion of African Americans, Latina/os, and others, making it the most heterogeneous Muslim community in the world.

With an up-to-the-minute analysis by thirty of the top scholars in the field, this handbook covers the growth of Islam in America from the earliest Muslims to set foot on American soil to the current wave of Islamophobia. Topics covered include the development of African American Islam; pre- and post-WWII immigrants; Sunni, Shi`ite, sectarian and Sufi movements in America; the role and status of women, marriage, and family; and the Americanization of Islamic culture.

Throughout these chapters the contributors explore the meaning of religious identity in the context of race, ethnicity, gender, and politics, both within the American Islamic community and in relation to international Islam.

The Oxford Handbook of European Islam

Edited by Jocelyne Cesari, 896 pages | 246x171mm , 978-0-19-960797-6 | Hardback | 30 October 2014

 

  • Presents a systematic and cross-national analysis of the multiple and changing ways Islam has been studied across European countries
  • Discusses immigration, integration and social status; religion in the public space and education; international constraints; growing influence of Global Salafism
  • Proposes a clearer identification and delimitation of what constitutes the category « Islam, » by analysing the definition of a Muslim and of what constitutes a Muslim community
  • Provides a review of the contemporary literature on Islam and Muslims in the country, focusing on the most common topics across this literature, i.e. Immigration issues, socio-economic status, religion and secularism, political participation, and international constraints

For centuries, Muslim countries and Europe have engaged one another through theological dialogues, diplomatic missions, political rivalries, and power struggles. In the last thirty years, due in large part to globalization and migration from Islamic countries to the West, what was previously an engagement across national and cultural boundaries has increasingly become an internalized encounter within Europe itself. Questions of the Hijab in schools, freedom of expression in the wake of the Danish Cartoon crisis, and the role of Shari’a have come to the forefront of contemporary European discourse.

The Oxford Handbook of European Islam is the first collection to present a comprehensive approach to the multiple and changing ways Islam has been studied across European countries. Parts one to three address the state of knowledge of Islam and Muslims within a selection of European countries, while presenting a critical view of the most up-to-date data specific to each country. These chapters analyse the immigration cycles and policies related to the presence of Muslims, tackling issues such as discrimination, post-colonial identity, adaptation, and assimilation. The thematic chapters, in parts four and five, examine secularism, radicalization, Shari’a, Hijab, and Islamophobia with the goal of synthesizing different national discussion into a more comparative theoretical framework. The Handbook attempts to balance cutting edge assessment with the knowledge that the content itself will eventually be superseded by events. Featuring eighteen newly-commissioned essays by noted scholars in the field, this volume will provide an excellent resource for students and scholars interested in European Studies, immigration, Islamic studies, and the sociology of religion.

Readership: Students and scholars studing Islamic studies; of Qur’anic studies; of sociology of religion
