Being Arab: Ethnic and Religious Identity Building among Second Generation Youth in Montreal

Front Cover
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, Jul 10, 2007 - Social Science - 272 pages
Eid looks at the significance of religion to ethnic identity building, a largely understudied issue in ethnic studies, and the extent to which social and cultural practices are structured along ethnic and religious lines. Being Arab also analyzes whether gendered traditions act as identity markers for young Canadians of Arab descent and whether men and women hold different views on traditional gender roles, especially regarding power within romantic relationships and sexuality.
