Description: The Muslim Metropolis explores the history of Sarajevo through Melika Salihbeg Bosnawi, whose life shows Sarajevo as a centre of Islamic praxis in the Balkans of the Cold War. Her transnational political activities, from Sarajevo to Paris and Teheran, illustrate the mobilization of a decolonial Islam in socialist Yugoslavia in the larger context of the non-aligned world.
