Abstract

This article analyzes the political, social, and religious discourse of the Association des Étudiants Musulmans de l'Université de Dakar (AEMUD), and does so by analyzing its newspaper, L'Étudiant Musulman. It explores the image of Muslim identity that the association proposes by showing how this identity results from a complex and stratified ideological corpus, based on the fundamental principles and texts of Islam and on local, regional, and international political—religious contexts. It examines whether, through AEMUD's dualist interpretation of the world, the demand for another hegemonic cultural model, one based on Sharî ca, necessarily signifies the rejection of globalization and its attributes.
