Abstract

In Faithfully Urban, Petra Kuppinger explores the rich possibilities of urban ethnography by way of studying Muslim participation in the production of everyday culture. Her ethnography shows how Islam in Stuttgart has become a German religion and counters the public opinion that immigrants, especially Muslims, are not willing to participate in “German culture” by demonstrating how Muslims are playing an important role in negotiating and shaping various multicultural and multiethnic urban settings, including their contributions to public localities and the public sphere. This work gives some unique insights into ethnographic vignettes of urban spaces in the German city of Stuttgart by depicting local people and their diverse experiences of Muslim practices.
