Project Details

Abstract: 

This project will address the phenomenon of English-speaking jihadist ideologues and examine the ways in which such figures tailor their messages in sermons, pamphlets, tracts, and speeches (usually through the internet) to attract and mobilize Western Muslim audiences. In doing so, it will shed further light on al-Qaida's efforts to recruit Muslims in the English-speaking world, chiefly North America and the United Kingdom.
