Reconsidering Transnationalism among Muslim Minorities

Jakob Egholm Feldt and Kristine Sinclair

This book presents original research on the practical creation or use of places, homes, senses of loyalty and feelings of togetherness among Muslim minorities in Europe. The individual chapters deal with examples of Muslim «homing» or «sense-making» strategies, or the possibilities thereof, in Britain, Denmark, and Ireland. Through their research, the authors challenge prevalent perspectives in research on Muslims in Europe such as the transnational perspective and the Orientalism perspective. The chapters are inspired by recent cultural and human geography in order to emphasize the spatiality of «homing» and «sense-making» strategies.
