Summary
  • Global Flows, Local Appropriations; Facets of Secularisation and Re-Islamization Among Contemporary Cape Muslims is the first ethnographic study of muslims in Cape Town, South Africa at this level in 25 years. It explores processes of secularisation and re-islamization among Cape Muslims in the context of a post-apartheid South Africa in which liberal and secular values have attained considerable purchase in the new political and social elites. Fractured by status, ethnicity and religious orientation, Cape muslims have responded to these changes through an ambiguous accomodation with the new order. This study explores this development through chapters on conversions to Islam among black Africans in Cape Town, Cape women's experiences with polygyny, Cape muslims and HIV/AIDS, the status of Islam in a prison Cape Town in the post-apartheid era and on contestation over rituals among Cape muslims
  • Global Flows, Local Appropriations; Facets of Secularisation and Re-Islamization Among Contemporary Cape Muslims is de eerste etnografische studie naar moslims in het Zuid-Afrikaanse Kaapstad van dit niveau in 25 jaar. Sindre Bangstad onderzoekt het proces van secularisatie en re-islamisatie onder Kaapse moslims in de context van een Zuid-Afika na de apartheid. In dit Zuid-Afrika zijn liberale en seculiere normen en waarden de standaard geworden onder de politieke en sociale elite. Kaapse moslims, verdeeld door status, etniciteit en religieuze orientatie, passen zich op een twijfelachtige manier aan aan deze nieuwe orde. Deze studie bevat onderzoek naar; bekering tot de Islam door zwarte Afrikanen in Kaapstad, de ervaringen van Kaapse vrouwen met polygamie, Kaapse moslims en HIV/AIDS, de status van de Islam in een Kaapse gevangenis in het Zuid-Afrika van na de apartheid en onderlinge strubbelingen en discussies over rituelen
