    This thesis investigates the historical development of the American Muslim community in Detroit from the 1910s to the 1980s. The objective is to understand how different waves of migration influenced the consolidation of Muslim identity in this urban setting. Using a historical analysis method, the research examines three key periods: the arrival of early Arab American migrants who integrated into the Ford Motor Company workforce, the rise of the Nation of Islam among Black American Muslims, and the settlement of educated South Asian Muslims post-1965. The results highlight the complex interplay between economic incentives, racial and ethnic diversity, and religious identity. The conclusion reveals that these dynamics not only shaped the Muslim community in Detroit but also reflect broader themes of migration, assimilation, and cultural persistence in American history.

  3. Migrations internes vers İstanbul : discours, sources et quelques réalités

    Pérouse, Jean-François.
    Istanbul : Institut français d’études anatoliennes, 2014.

    Quoique les deux-tiers de la population d’İstanbul soient nés hors du département, l’analyse des dynamiques migratoires à İstan­bul, entendues dans toutes leurs dimensions, même les plus contraires au sens et au discours communs, reste largement à faire. S’il existe quelques études (citées ci-dessous), elles sont rares, biaisées et souvent lacunaires, à l’excep­tion des remarquables travaux de Sema Erder (1996), Neşe Özgen (1999) et de Harald Schüler (1999, notamment en ce qui concerne les Stambouliotes originaires du département d’Erzincan). En outre, il semble que l’analyse des migrations se heurte à d’innombrables a priori et préjugés, qui ont pour effet de fausser toute approche, même celle qui se présente sous des atours scientifiques. C’est à la mise à jour de ces préjugés et de ces lacunes que nous devons travailler en premier lieu. Ce dossier n’est qu’une première synthèse, critique, dont la seule prétention est d’offrir des repères pour pouvoir enfin sortir des lieux com­muns en vigueur et approfondir sérieusement un « problème » dont tout le monde parle, mais dont l’analyse précise reste à faire.
