Abstract: This project is motivated by the premise that the experience of the Muslims in the U.S. after 9/11 can profoundly affect the effectiveness of U.S. homeland security policies and measures in the long run. The project seeks to understand how Muslim identities are negotiated in the especially hostile environment in the U.S. after 9/11, and how individual and community predicaments involved in such negotiations can be destabilizing without being properly understood and addressed at the level of national politics.
