Copenhagen University Middle East and Islam Network (CUMINet)

William Ward from the Arab Media and Society Journal has tipped me off to a new collaborative blog related to the Middle East and media. CUMINet (Copenhagen University Middle East and Islam Network) is an independent collective enterprise run and edited by the contributors. The aim of CUMINet is to introduce Danish scholars working on ‘the modern Muslim world’ to an international audience. Included in this term are also discussions of Muslim minorities in Europe as well as non-Muslim minorities within the Muslim world.

A study of selected Islamic Internet Sites in East Africa

Islam is making increasing use of the Internet to propagate ideas and to inform followers as well as to attract non-adherents. The paper examines selected Islamic Internet sites whose content is oriented for East Africa. Initial expectations had been that many Internet sites would be ‘home-grown’, however it became apparent that most Internet sites have been set-up and are operated by the Muslim Diaspora. The paper examines four sites from Kenya and Tanzania looking at the content and approaches used by these sites. The failure of the diaspora to maintain sites is explored. Some tentative suggestions are made as to why Islamic Internet Sites have yet to be a successful in East Africa.
