Abstract:This collective volume focuses on Muslim youth in various settings worldwide as a heterogeneous global cohort that has arisen since the attacks of 9/11, facilitated by recent communication technologies and the Internet. The book addresses such questions as: Is there a 9/11 generation of Muslim youth? What brings together the wide variety of experiences of being young and being Muslim in extremely diverse social circumstances? How do youth articulate both their youthfulness and their Muslimness? The authors explore the pastimes and performances, processes of civic engagement and political action, entrepreneurial and consumption practices, forms of self-fashioning, and aspirations and struggles in which Muslim youth engage as they seek to understand their place and make their way in a transformed world.
