Research Statement

My M.A. research, as a part of a collaborative SSHRC-funded project called Canadian Muslims Online, focuses on how Canadian Muslims construct and maintain their identities and find authority online. In doing so, I hope to explore the diverse ways in which Canadian Muslims use the internet to navigate Canadian public life, express their religious identities, and respond to Canadian policies that directly and indirectly affect their day to day lives.
