Muslims on StudiVZ.de: An Empirical Perspective on Religious Affiliation and National Belonging in Times of Web 2.0

Muslims on StudiVZ.de: An Empirical Perspective on Religious Affiliation and National Belonging in Times of Web 2.0

Social Online Networks such as the German StudiVZ.de form a public sphere which allows Muslim university students to dispute their understanding of being Muslim in secular Germany. These inner-Muslim dialogues develop along the lines of religious and national identity which is due to the fact that the German public tends to question the Muslims’ loyalty to the state. By thrashing the differing ideas of Islam, nation and secular state the Muslim students on StudiVZ.de give insight into the ways in which knowledge about Islam is produced and authority is being reoriented.
