CASTRO, Cristina Maria de. The Construction of Muslim Identities: A Comparative Perspective between Two São Paulo Communities. Dados [online]. 2014, vol.57, n.4, pp.1043-1076. ISSN 0011-5258.

This article analyzes the construction of Muslim identities in Brazil. It seeks to show how this process fundamentally unfurls amidst the field of religions in Brazil, the pressures created by globalization, and the internal tension between genders and among converted Arab immigrants. Through the participant-observation technique at the Islam Youth League and the Campinas Islamic Center it was possible to observe the multiplicity of Islamic beliefs and practices being carried out in Brazilian soil.

Keywords : sociology of religion; Islam; identity; immigration; Muslims; Brazil.
