Title: In the Shade of the Sunna | Book Talk

In the Shade of the Sunna | Book Talk

Aaron Rock-Singer is a historian of the modern Middle East, with a research focus on 20th century Islamic movements and states. He received his B.A. at the University of Pennsylvania, his M.Phil at Oxford and his Ph.D. at Princeton University. In his first book, Practicing Islam in Egypt: Print Media and Islamic Revival (Cambridge, 2019), he drew on ideologically diverse Islamic magazines from this period to chart the rise of an Islamic Revival in 1970s Egypt within a larger global story of religious contestation and change. This talk, hosted by ACMCU, focuses on his new book “In the Shade of the Sunna: Salafi Piety in the 20th Century Middle East”.
