              Drawing on local interviews but global in scope, this book is the first to examine the lives of a generation for whom the rise of the far-right, the discourse of Trump and Brexit and the growing polarisation of politics seems normal in the long aftermath of 9/11. It's about time ...we hear what they have to say.

              The slide opened and I heard a gentle, kind voice: 'What is your confession, my child?' I was stuffed. The priest would declare me a heretic; my parents would call me a traitor . . . The priest asked me again: 'What is your confession, my child?' 'I'm Muslim,' I whispered. Welcom...e to my world. I'm Amal Abdel-Hakim, a sixteen-year-old Australian-Palestinian-Muslim still getting to grips with my various identity hyphens. It's hard enough to be cool as a teenager, but try wearing a veil on your head and getting in the 'bums up' position at lunchtime and you know you're in for a tough time. Luckily my friends support me, although they've got a few troubles of their own. Simone, blonde and gorgeous, has got serious image issues, and Leila's really intelligent but her parents are more interested in her getting a marriage certificate than her high school certificate. And I thought I had problems . . . A story of being true to yourself, standing up for your beliefs and finding your own way. Praise for Does My Head Look Big In This? 'The freshest voice and perspective in young adult fiction.' Weekend Australian 'Reading Randa Abdel-Fattah's first novel is like discovering a jewel.' Sydney Morning Herald 'A no-holds-barred look at life when cultures clash and modernity wars with tradition.' Good Weekend 'This debut should speak to anyone who has felt like an outsider for any reason.' Publisher's Weekly

              Islamophobia and Everyday Multiculturalism in Australia

              This book explores Islamophobia in Australia, shifting attention from its victims to its perpetrators by examining the visceral, atavistic nature of people's feelings and responses to the Muslim `other' in everyday life. Based on ethnographic fieldwork, Islamophobia and Everyday ...Multiculturalism sheds light on the problematisations of Muslims amongst Anglo and non-Anglo Australians, investigating the impact of whiteness on minorities' various reactions to Muslims. Advancing a micro-interactional, ethnographically oriented perspective, the author demonstrates the ways in which Australia's histories and logics of racial exclusion, thinking and expression produce processes in which whiteness socializes, habituates and `teaches' `racialising' behaviour, and shows how national and global events, moral panics, and political discourse infiltrate everyday encounters between Muslims and non-Muslims, producing distinct structures of feeling and discursive, affective and social practices of Islamophobia. As such, it will be of interest to social scientists with interests in race and ethnicity, migration and diaspora and Islamophobia.
