Putting Islam to Work

Gregory Starrett

University of California Press

This chapter discusses some examples of the way the public economy of information shapes the representations of the political uses of Islam, stating that the public economy of information is the part of culture which is most firmly grounded in the expectations and worries created by schooling. The examples it presents and discusses were chosen for what they reveal of the public image of Islamicized political activity and the creation of “Islamic publicness.”

Keywords:   economy of information, uses of Islam, expectations, schooling, public image, Islamicized political activity, Islamic publicness
