TABLE blog post: On flesh and the spirit - understanding British Muslims’ meat consumption

What makes British Muslims’ consumption practices distinctive? Is there a unique story to tell regarding their meat consumption? How do they negotiate various competing motivations? In light of popular consumer movements to learn about where our food comes from, how do Muslim consumers think about food animals’ lives and deaths?

We have just published a new blog post by Hibba Mazhary, PhD student in Geography at the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford. Read Hibba’s blog post here: On flesh and the spirit: understanding British Muslims’ meat consumption.

This is Hibba’s second TABLE blog post. Her first, published in 2019, set out the aims of her PhD research: Distancing death: slaughter, welfare and consumption in the British halal meat industry.
