Doctoral Research Enquiries
The Centre for the Study of Islam in the UK specialises in the social scientific study of Islam and Muslims in contemporary Britain. Enquiries are welcome from prospective doctoral students for projects on a wide range of topics, but they must relate specifically to Islam and Muslims in the British context, and employ social scientific/anthropological research techniques. Enquiries for interdisciplinary/jointly supervised research are also welcome, since the Centre has strong links to academics working in other Schools in Cardiff University, such as the Cardiff Business School, the School of Journalism, the School of Social Science, and the School of History and Archaeology.
Suggested topics for research:
1) Training of Imams and 'ulama in British dar ul-uloom
2) The history and development of the Muslim community in Wales
3) British Muslim youth: inclusion and exclusion in public life
4) Muslim women in Britain: strategies for empowerment
To progress your enquiry about doctoral research, please send a written proposal of about 3000 words. this should outline your research aims and objectives, your research questions, your intended methodology, an indicative timetable and a bibliography.
