About the Journal

ReOrient is an international, double blind peer-reviewed journal that seeks to publish quality research on the newly emerging field of Critical Muslim Studies. We encourage a decolonial, post-positivist, post-orientalist and post-Eurocentric approach to the analysis of the historical and contemporary political, socio-economic, and cultural processes that are constitutive of the Islamicate in its widest-ranging permutations. 

Aims & Scope

ReOrient is an interdisciplinary journal that has no geographical focus but is dedicated to rethinking those entities and events considered to lie outside the conceptuality of Western hegemony – culturally, geopolitically and philosophically.
