There is evidence of two main discourses about the masculinities of young Muslim men – one that emphasizes patriarchy and aggression, the other effeminacy and academicism – and together they offer polarized perspectives of young Muslim men’s masculinities. This paper explores youthful Muslim masculinities through narratives of gender and generational relations, using interview and focus group data collected during discussions with young Muslim men, mainly of Pakistani heritage, who live in Glasgow and Edinburgh, in Scotland. I seek to use this data to disrupt these dominant discourses by demonstrating that young Muslim men’s masculinities are influenced by markers of social difference, as well as locality, and so are multiple, fluid and multi-faceted.
