Peter Morey is Professor of 20th century English Literature at the University of Birmingham. He specialises in narratives and power, with special attention to representations of, and by, the Muslim diaspora. He has published widely in the fields of postcolonial and modern literary studies, while his interdisciplinary interests also take in media and political discourses. His books include “Fictions of India: Narrative and Power” (Edinburgh UP, 2000); “Rohinton Mistry” (Manchester UP, 2004); “Alternative Indias: Writing, Nation and Communalism” (Rodopi, 2006); and “Framing Muslims: Stereotype and Representation after 9/11” (Harvard University Press, 2011) [co-authored with Amina Yaqin]. From 2007 to 2010 he was Principal Investigator on the AHRC-funded ‘Framing Muslims’ international research network. In addition to the “Framing Muslims” monograph, the project resulted in a co-edited collection: “Culture, Diaspora, and Modernity in Muslim Writing” (Routledge, 2012). Between 2012 and 2015 he was an RCUK Global Uncertainties Leadership Fellow heading the ‘Muslims, Trust and Cultural Dialogue’ project. This project yielded two co-edited books: “Muslims, Trust and Multiculturalism” (Palgrave, 2018), and “Contesting Islamophobia” (IB Tauris/Bloomsbury, 2019). His latest book is “Islamophobia and the Novel” (Columbia University Press, 2018). He is currently working on intercultural empathy and narrative form.
