Critical Muslim is pleased to be hosting an exciting event with Bradford Literature Festival.  

Critical Muslim Conversations - Free-thinking Values for Our Troubled Times

The concepts of internal and external beauty are unavoidable aspects of modern life. In a world changing faster than ever, the pressure to either conform to or rebel against different beauty trends can be hard to ignore, as the quarterly publication Critical Muslim addresses in its latest issue.

Hosted by Shanon Shah, who penned the introduction to the issue, this event will bring together writers Samia Rahman, Henry Brefo, Yovanka Perdigao and Irum Shehreen Ali to discuss objectification, cultural assimilation, the ethics of the Muslim fashion industry, inner beauty, and spirituality in the context of contemporary living.

This event will launch the latest issue of CM:27 Beauty and showcase its contributors.

Critical Muslim is a unique quarterly publication of ideas and issues showcasing ground-breaking thinking on Islam and what it means to be a Muslim in a rapidly changing, interconnected world. 

Edited by Britain’s foremost Muslim public thinker and writer Ziauddin Sardar, Critical Muslim is a platform for the most innovative, vital and accessible writing from inside and outside the Muslim world, in the UK and internationally. 

Launched during the Arab Spring, each issue brings together essays on religion, politics, history and culture to address a major theme.
