Abstract(s)
The article deals with the issue of the reintegration of Czech women converts to Islam into Czech society. It follows the transformations in the self-identifications and self-presentations of these women after conversion, which may lead to their excluded and stigmatized position in society. The paper analyses, along the lines of Erving Goffman's dramaturgical approach, stigma and the narrative-autobiographical paradigm in the life stories of four Czech Muslim women, the possible strategies of self-presentation and impression management through which they try to reverse stigma and segregated position in their existing community or, the path of reintegration, without major losses to their own new (Muslim) identity. It also examines the negative and possibly Islamophobic experiences of these women, who, as members of marginalized minority, acquire a wide variety of daily interactions with Czech majority society, which is often generally biased against Islam.
