Abstract: Speaking to _Not My Mother’s Sister_, Astrid Henry’s study of feminism’s mother/daughter metaphor, this essay explores consciousness in context of feminist theory. Born into a working class family in 1964, I am neither the Second Wave’s daughter nor the Third Wave’s mother. This essay revisits pre-school gendering learned through housework, television French lessons, Jack LaLanne exercise, and trips to the local five and dime, recalls my click of consciousness, and questions the metaphor’s power to cast me as a mother-figure to young feminists.

Abstract: Islam has been a cultural and political force in Europe since the 1980s. Each Muslim nation has set up religious organizations with distinct characteristics in the migrant receiving countries. The diversity in the structure and strategy of such organizations stems from the socio-cultural positions and political relations of their country of origin with the host state. Moreover, ethnic and racial qualities as well as the religious-based political conflicts in the homeland are also influential on the success of Islamic associations in Europe. Some scholars like Carolyn M.Warner and Manfred W.Wenner consider the political organization of Muslims in Europe as ineffective and disorganized because of the decentralized nature of Islam in the first place. Based on this assumption, they claim that Islamic groups are not able to impose their goals on European and domestic policy, nor will they ever influence the policy of the host state in accordance with their self interests (Warner and Wenner 2006). I argue that the fact that Muslim communities are diversified with a variety of concerns and beliefs does not prove that they lack political impact as certain events like the veil affair in France made the state question and redefine laїcité, which has been the main principle of the French Republic (Kastaryano, 2004: 5). Further, they have the power to de/reconstruct the public opinion about Islam at most times through activities that are neither radical nor hostile to Western norms. Islamic organizations also unite in their reactions to counter forces as long as they have common interests despite their fragmented collectivity due to the diversity of nations and sects. Muslims in Europe gain political legitimacy both by benefiting from multicultural democracies and fruitful transnational ties. This paper will mainly focus on the transnational attachments of the Muslim groups and the universal values that they profit from in their search of social justice. Democracy, human rights, equality as humanitarian principles favored among Western societies can no longer be affixed specifically to European countries (Soysal 2002: 274). In other words, Islamic minorities in Europe take the advantage of these ideals when they demand social rights or erase the negative image of Muslim communities residing in European counties. Among such organizations Turkish Islamic associations deserve special attention because of their regular activities and struggles to build and maintain strong transnational connections with national/international organizations and institutions with similar interests. It is highly remarkable that Turkish Islamic groups operate mainly in the major European cities and their activities appear as urban movements that re/shape the public opinion and state policy in the host countries. In this respect, this civic action will be analyzed as an urban movement.

Abstract: Social media as well as the internet in general play an important role in the lives of young people today. The consumption of political news strongly differs from that of the elderly and is stamped by digital media. Moreover adolescents inform themselves less actively about politics – the duty to keep informed has decreased constantly in the last years. According to present research social media is not as important when it comes to political information. The use of social media is to a greater degree an apolitical one and is heavily determined by motives concerning interpersonal communication.

The basic research question of our study has been: What do citizens and particularly young citizens know about politics and the daily news to actively take part in democracy? The empirical basis is a representative survey of 1,800 people in Germany, among them 600 adolescents (disproportional sample), about their awareness and knowledge of the previous day’s most relevant news. Over a 30 days period each day the two most important news items were chosen by a panel of scholars and top journalists on the basis of their relevance for understanding the political process. Respondents were asked about their awareness of the news items and about their primary and secondary news sources including traditional and online media as well as social networks.

First analyses show that adolescents differ significantly from the elderly. The older the respondents the more often they have known and informed themselves about both these most relevant news topics. Usually the first news story was better known than the second one. Adolescents stated more often to be just aware of the news stories without having further informed themselves about them. The results show that social media such as twitter, blogs and social networks do not matter for creating awareness of daily news on politics and public affairs. The most important news media for both adolescents and the elderly still is television. In comparison with the elderly, adolescents tend to use internet sources more often. But on the whole also young people still bank on the traditional news media.
