Abstract

Two young German Muslims are using online platforms to engage with the public on their own terms. The website muslime.tv and blog Ein Fremdwoerterbuch both illustrate the main features of counterpublics: documenting feelings of exclusion and misrepresentations by the mainstream public, circulation of alternative identity images, and criticism of mainstream public discourses. These spaces are increasingly needed, Asmaa Soliman finds, with every new incident or discourse that puts Muslims’ place in Europe into question.
