Announcing the publication of Beyond Accommodation from UBC Press!


As a special introductory offer, UBC is offering 40% off of the book to my friends and colleagues.

Problems – of integration, failed political participation, and requests for various kinds of accommodation – seem to dominate the research on minority Muslims in Western nations. Beyond Accommodation offers a different perspective, showing how Muslim Canadians successfully navigate and negotiate their religiosity. The authors critique the model of reasonable accommodation, suggesting that it disempowers religious minorities by implicitly privileging Christianity and by placing the onus on minorities to make formal requests for accommodation. Through interviews, Muslim Canadians show that informal negotiation takes place all the time; scholars, however, have not been paying attention. This book proposes an alternative picture of how religious difference is woven into the fabric of Canadian society.

Order online at ubcpress.ca, and enter in the discount code 8283-40 at the checkout screen to receive 40% off the hardcover’s retail price.

This discount code will expire on November 30, 2018.

Jennifer, Amélie, and Lori, the authors
