"Lived Secularization": Young Chinese Female Muslim Converts in Hong Kong

By WC Chee

Abstract

Session 4: Muslim and Christian Spaces in Contemporary Chinese CitiesThis paper examines the way the “secular” and “religious” shape each other in everyday practices through the experiences of a group of well-educated young Chinese female Muslim converts in Hong Kong. Grounded in ethnographic fieldwork, this study unpacks the ways in which these women understand and employ a secular interpretation of certain Islamic practices, or an Islamic interpretation of certain Chinese traditions/Hong Kong social norms to illuminate the construction and reconstruction of the “secular” and “religious” as an evolving process on individual level
