The Muslim response to popular culture, especially western popular culture, has been widely perceived as one of that of resistance, especially against negative portrayal of the community in various popular cultural productions. However, over the years Muslim engagement with the domain of popular has emerged as a distinct area of academic research.

Shaped by different religious traditions, the apocalypse has been called upon throughout history to articulate collective anxieties, act as a warning, or a yearned-for spiritual salvation. These contradictory and competing aims behind imagining the end of the world in specific cultural moments make it a fertile ground for analysis.

This call for papers welcomes submissions from all historical periods and geographic regions.
