Arguing Islam after the Revival of Arab Politics

Nathan Brown

Oxford University Press

This chapter shifts the focus away from specific spaces for discourse in the Middle East and more to the overall effect: How do the various spaces intersect? How do they conflict, interpenetrate, and interlock? It also considers two less-than-fully-public spaces for political arguments about religion: one of specialist discourse and one of state administration. The first involves scholars and religious officials and spaces where they speak to their followers. The second involves areas in which state officials and institutions set their determination about how religious matters are to be governed or inform the manner of governing. The chapter begins by examining the growing permeability of the divisions among the separate spheres for argument. It then looks at the political effects of this porousness and the way that authority operates (and is modified) when arguments are moved across spheres. Finally, it traces the evolution of the republic of arguments.

Keywords:   Arab society, Arab world, public spaces, political arguments, religion, specialist discourse, state administration
