In recent years, there have been numerous studies about the definitions and impacts of Islamophobia. The premise of this article is that by combining a number of different disciplines, including history and literature, we may elucidate further key contexts and realities about Islamophobia. As such, this article is a reflection on Islamophobia as a multifaceted and developing phenomena that in turn requires multidisciplinary reflection. Indeed, we approach the issue from different perspectives: one author is a literary critic and historian (who has written about early modern Europe and curated a high-profile exhibition on Muslims in World War One), one is acriminologist (a leading expert on Islamophobia and a key advisor to the UK government on how it might be defined).
