Abstract:

This paper examines the Muslim experience following the events of September 11, 2001. I begin by reviewing the literature regarding post-disaster communities, with a specific focus on community cohesion, and isolation, following natural and technological disasters and intentional acts of violence. Next, I discuss the setting in which this study was conducted, the research participants, and the methods that were used. I then explicate several reasons why Muslim university students in New York City often felt excluded from the therapeutic community which emerged after the September 11 attacks. The group solidarity that developed among Muslims in response to this exclusion is detailed. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the sociological implications of post-disaster isolation as well as suggestions for future disaster research.
