‘Digital British Islam: How do Cyber Islamic Environments impact everyday life?’
Salam and Welcome
This is the web page for the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded Digital British Islam project (grant number ES/W002175/1).
‘Digital British Islam: How do Cyber Islamic Environments impact everyday life?’’ (shortened to ‘DBI’) is an innovative multi-institution investigation led by Professor Gary R. Bunt (University of Wales Trinity Saint David – UWTSD). The ESRC awarded DBI a £804,000 grant. The three-year project began in May 2022.
As Principal Investigator, Professor Bunt is working in collaboration with Co-Investigator Professor Sariya Cheruvallil-Contractor (Coventry University) and Co-Investigator Professor Frédéric Volpi (University of Edinburgh).
The DBI team includes Research Fellows Dr Khadijah Elshayyal (Edinburgh) and Dr Sadek Hamid (UWTSD). DBI’s Post-Doctoral Researchers are Dr Alamgir Ahmed (Coventry University/UWTSD) and Dr Laura Jones (UWTSD).
We utilise five methods within a netnographic approach to develop a granulated analysis of online activity and its influence within diverse British Muslim communities.
