PhD Research

Being Muslim The Indonesian Way : The Construction and Representation of Femininity in Social Media

My research explores the way in which Muslim women in Indonesia generate social media as a way to represent their femininity as well as the way in which femininity is being constructed within their engagement of community. Drawing from femininity as socially constructed, I will conduct in-depth interviews with the members of ‘Hijabers Community’, a fast growing fashion addict Muslim women community in Indonesia as well as group discussions and textual analysis on some of their videos in Video blogging sites such as YouTube
