Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses questions of identity and belonging, locating diasporic Muslim women with respect to homeland, host nation, and the global umma. It focuses on uneven power relations, either geographically, in terms of the global north and global south, and/or the relationship of the research to the researched and the balance of power at an individual level. The chapter examines the production of minority religious landscapes. Much of geographical research focuses on diasporic Muslim youth who are at the forefront of the popular imaginary and governmental agendas. The study by Gökarıksel and Secor of the hijab in Turkey explores the relationship between headscarf as a religious practice and a form of fashion. As part of the private sphere, the kitchen is a space that is opaque and supports women's seclusion while men dominate the more open and visible public sphere.

Keywords: diasporic Muslim women; geographical research; hijab; kitchen in Hausa; minority religious landscapes; umma
