Murad Idris is writing a book on constructions of Islam across political theory and popular discourse. The project explores the genealogies of claims such as “Islam means submission,” “Islam is peace,” and “Islam needs a Luther,” appeals to the etymology of the word islām, and the political imaginations that make Islam into a subject.
