I am currently researching identity formations and everyday lives of Muslims in Sweden. I am interested in understanding how the ‘Muslim’ identity is articulated when intergenerational co-histories interact with the Swedish secular societal context and how this (Muslim) identity is negotiated and navigated between and across various levels of interactions i.e. Individual (micro), family, education and labour market (meso) and state (macro).
