Promotional Information

"Kyle Conway's analysis of Little Mosque on the Prairie offers imaginative and significant insights about representations, circulations, and interpretations of what it means to be Muslim, or not, in post-9/11 North America. Traversing disciplinary boundaries and cultural divides, this book should be of keen interest to scholars and students of media, translation, cultural, and religious studies. I'd also recommend it strongly to media professionals and policy makers." -- Michael Curtin, Duncan and Suzanne Mellichamp Professor of Film and Media Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara "In Little Mosque on the Prairie and the Paradoxes of Cultural Translation Kyle Conway pierces below the surface of the discourse of this sitcom to examine its modes of production, distribution, and consumption. His notion of 'saleable diversity' is a major conceptual advance in understanding the dynamics of media translation between cultures in the context of global consumer capitalism." -- Franz Volker Greifenhagen, Dean, Luther College, University of Regina

Reviews

'Conway provides a great deal for the scholar of religion....For those who want to understand the diversity of Muslims in North America; this offers a Canadian perspective that is often left out of the equation. We should certainly add Little Mosque on the Prairie to the list of key works on Muslims in media, television, and cinema.' - Kristen Petersen - Reading Religion - December 2017 'A valuable study of media and multiculturalism. Highly recommended.' - C.L. Clements - Choice Magazine vol 55:01:2017
