Tittel

Negotiating Belonging in Contested Spaces: Queer Religious Migrants in Oslo and London [PhD project]

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

The intention of this study is to push the boundary of migration research, bringing under focus the multi-faceted relationship between queerness and religiosity. The aim is to explore, understand and explain processed of identity-building, belonging-development and community-formation that permeate the essence of religious queer migrant lives. This is a qualitative study, building on in-depth interviews focusing on the experiences of residents of London (UK) and Oslo. Despite a tendency towards secularisation in Western Europe, there is an emergence of religious groups, often led my migrants and people with migrant backgrounds, promoting inclusive and open spaces to queer individuals who may otherwise be (or feel) excluded by traditional religious congregations. How is belonging understood and negotiated at the individual level by queer migrants who self-identify as religious? And what are the implications for identity formation at the community level and for religious organisations, including the development of queer-inclusive migrant spaces of faith?
