Description

This chapter examines the different expressions of religious activism among young Italian-Bangladeshis to shed light on the relationship between public sphere, Islam, and sites of modernity in migratory contexts. The analysis highlights how Islam can be appropriated in different positionalities to construct a public discourse which assumes theatrical and topological forms.
