Organization URL:   


This is the archiving site for the ESRC funded Digital British Islam project (grant number ES/W002175/1), UWTSD's project partners are Coventry University and the University of Edinburgh. The three-year project, entitled ‘Digital British Islam: How do Cyber Islamic Environments impact everyday life?’, is led by Professor Gary R. Bunt (University of Wales Trinity Saint David - UWTSD), with Co-Investigator Dr Sariya Cheruvallil-Contractor (Coventry University) and Co-Investigator Professor Frédéric Volpi (University of Edinburgh). The team includes two research fellows, Dr Khadijah Elshayyal and Dr Sadek Hamid, and two Post-Doctoral Researchers: Dr Laura Jones (UWTSD) and Dr Alamgir Ahmed (Coventry University).

The archiving team comprises Professor Bunt, Dr Hamid, Dr Ahmed and Dr Jones. The archives explore different aspects of ‘Cyber-Islamic environments’ (CIEs), an umbrella term used to describe how different forms of internet media are used within diverse Muslim contexts. The research maps how CIEs are growing and evolving in relation to intergenerational changes within diverse UK Muslim communities. Using a range of methodological approaches, the research team are exploring how digital practices are shaping every day, in-person and ‘real’ experiences of Muslim beliefs in Britain - focused on three themes that generate much public debate - religious authority, gender, and political agency. Collections will be released in stages, and will continue to be updated during the project's duration.

More information is on the website. Updates will be posted on X @digibritislam (
