Short Abstract
There's a gap between research in Islamic contexts and research in contexts with Muslim minorities. Assuming that it is heuristically important to seek the ethnographic continuities between what has been called the center and periphery of Islamic and Arab we invite contributions that testify to that.

Long Abstract
In the current anthropological literature, a gap seems to persist between ethnographic research carried out in Islamic contexts and that undertaken in contexts in which Muslims are minorities. This is clearly visible in theoretical terms, namely because the debates and issues raised in one context differ significantly from those in the other. In this panel, though, we assume that regardless of the specificity of each context, it is heuristically important to seek the theoretical and ethnographic continuities between what has been sometimes called the center and periphery of Islamic and Arab contexts. Themes such as translocal Islam, revivalist movements, the place of religion in the public space, Islamic education and governmentality efforts, secularism, (liberal) citizenship, consumption, ‘modernity’, ethical self fashioning, gender negotiations, political Islam, ‘correct’ Islamic practices, etc, are some of the topics that continuously affect Muslims wherever they are. In this panel we invite contributions that address such or other issues, in a way that, from an ethnographic or theoretical point of view, can give evidence for and testify to our assumption.
