Research Initiative:

Katherine Ewing, Associate Professor of Cultural Anthropology and Religion at Duke University, will write a book comparing young Muslim immigrants in two American and two German cities, examining how they handle differences between their culture of origin and life in liberal democratic societies. She will explore how these young Muslims form their identities and how their parents attempt to instill in them traditional Muslim social practices and gender roles that differ from American and German norms.
