GAY AND MUSLIM IN EUROPE

Objective

This project aims to allow the applicant (an experienced researcher) to achieve a turn in her career after a two years break, to increase her chances to be recruited as permanent senior researcher, through the acquisition of knowledge, experience in the new field of Gender and Sexualities. The host organization chosen is the Laboratoire d’Anthropologie des Mondes Contemporains (LAMC), a research center of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) that can provide the applicant with the most recent development in anthropology and sociology in gender and sexuality. The training of the applicant will be achieved through the realization of the GayMuslimEu project which seek to analyse the ground of the recent raising of ‘Gay Muslim’ groups in Europe by examining concomitantly 1/the construction of a specific Gay Muslim public problem and 2/the process of ‘subjectivation’ of gay and lesbian Muslims living in Europe through their ‘coming-out’ stories. As well as producing academic knowledge, and fostering academic networking and exchanges,the GayMuslimEu will propose activities that can help NGOs to fight against the discriminations which are based on religion and sexuality.
