For my final project, I looked at how Muslim women were represented in Muslim women magazines in the United States and the United Kingdom. These magazines serve as a great gateway for understanding the complexities in much of the relevant themes in our class including globalization and hybridity. These magazines including Muslim Girl, Azizah, Sisters, Emel and Alef show how there is an interaction between western consumer culture and Islamic lifestyle. Modesty, in this regard, becomes a form of consumption or it could alternatively become a form of resistance. In a way, these magazines show how the contradictory processes of sameness and difference, cultural homogenization and cultural heterogenization and cultural protectionism and cultural imperialism are working simultaneously in the most intricate ways.
