Everyday politics of belonging: The ambivalent experience of being young, female and Muslim in rural Norway.
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Here, I explore young female Muslims’ (age 13–17 years) everyday negotiations and practices of belonging in Norwegian towns. The analysis draws on Nira Yuval-Davis’ writing on belonging and the politics of belonging, and illustrates how discourses of belonging/non-belonging to the nation come into play in social encounters. The analysis is presented through three individual stories using an intersectional lens, including a time–space dimension, deconstructing the category ‘Muslim girl’. The stories provide insights into young women’s experiences and challenges regarding the contemporary politics of belonging in Northern Europe, highlighting their strategies for negotiating and creating belonging, including the role space plays in these strategies.
