Transnational Muslims in Germany: Politics of Migration, Religion, and Culture
Critically analyzes political debates about Muslims and Islam in Europe that often cast them as a “security threat” or a “problem” of failed integration. Traces the geographical production of Muslim subjects through transnational flows, networks and imaginaries. Examines a series of topics including debates about the headscarf, Muslim women’s dress, mosque construction, Muslim civil society organizations, and the refugee crisis in Germany. Taught in English as part of the Duke Middle East in Europe program.
