New Media and Political Islam in India

The study will map and analyze online media engagements of a major organization for political Islam in India (for e.g., Jamaat-i-Islami) using ethnographic techniques and discourse anlaysis. How does the organization engage, organize and regulate its online presence? How does it engage online debates on national belonging and what are the implications for historically configured politics of religious difference? How is authority affirmed and reconfigured in light of the emerging online Muslim publics?
