This chapter discusses research findings pertaining to Muslim women's identity work, pluralism on university campuses, and broader American culture. It shows that as Muslim women revised stereotypical images, they in the process perpetuated these images. And as they adopted their peers' vocabulary and attempted to correct it, they found that they had become official representatives of “Islam.” By its very nature, such representation was centered on static images, rather than on the constant flux of diverse lives and identities.
