Degrees of Difference: Islam and "Race" in Modern and Contemporary Anglo-Iranian
and Anglo-Arab Diasporic Literature

Despite its importance in popular culture, the invented image of the post 9/11 British Muslim figure remains surprisingly under-researched, at least as far as literary studies are concerned. This thesis will explore the experience documented by Anglo-Arab and Anglo-Iranian writers who are attempting to challenge the racialization of Islam, and negotiate a modern Islamic identity.
