Globalized Muslim Youth in the Asia Pacific Popular Culture in Singapore and Sydney

Kamaludeen Mohamed. Mohamed Nasir author.

"A sociological study of Muslim youth culture based on original ethnographic fieldwork in two global cities in the Asia Pacific: Singapore and Sydney. Muslims in Singapore and Sydney face similar challenges, such as their minority status and low socio-economic position relative to the larger society. The challenges these young urban Muslims face in their everyday lives are complicated by their context within the broader processes of globalization that bring together the September 11th generation living in the Information Age. Comparing young Muslims living in secular, multicultural cities across three domains of popular culture--hip-hop music, tattooing, and cultural consumption--this study illuminates the range of attitudes and strategies they adopt to reconcile popular youth culture with piety"-- ; 2016
