Re. New Book Announcement - Muslims and Humour: Essays on Comedy, Joking, and Mirth in Contemporary Islamic Contexts
Apologies for the self-promotion!
Some of you may be interested in the publication of our new co-edited volume on Muslims and Humour: Essays on Comedy, Joking, and Mirth in Contemporary Islamic Contexts, edited by Bernard Schweizer and Lina Molokotos-Liederman with Yasmi
n Amin (Bristol University Press, 2022).
The collection offers a multi-disciplinary approach to the connections between Islam, Muslims and humour. Beginning with theoretical perspectives on the subject and scriptural guidance on permissible and restricted humour in Islam, the volume presents case studies of Muslim comedic practices in various cultural, political and religious contexts, offering keen insights into the place of humour and laughter in Islam.
The book is available in print (hardcover) and also as an e-book. See: https://
Feel free to notify your university departments that the book is now available and to recommend the book to your library and/or as a teaching resource for a course. Library purchases are mainly driven by direct requests from academics or their reading lists!
