Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
This paper draws from the ethnographic research of Muslim migrants in Bratislava in Slovakia, which author conducted in the spring and summer of 2009. The author wishes to explain internal dynamics of what is often called the 'Muslim community' in Slovakia and he pays notice to the most important functions of a place these migrants call 'the mosque'. He will question these terms and shows why they are disputable. Even though Islam and migration are heavily debated issues in Europe, there has been very little research on them in Slovakia. This paper wishes to give a better perspective on these themes by approaching them from the 'inside'; from the particular life stories of men and women he met on the site during his fieldwork.
