Call for Scholars — Muslims and the Internet in Canada and in Quebec

Dear Colleagues,

I am trying to develop a modest project on Muslims and the Internet in Canada and in Quebec.

At this initial stage, I am trying to find out the names of scholars – affiliated with Canadian universities – who have worked, or are presently working on Muslims and the Internet, e.g., women, youth, or religious authority, in Canada or Quebec

I would be most grateful for your kind assistance with any suggestion of names of scholars.

Kind regards


Cher(e)s Collègue(s),
