Mobile Bodies, Mobile Souls engages the complex relationship between family, religion and migration. Following '9/11', much research on migrants in western societies has focused on the public and political dimensions of religion. This volume starts out 'from below', exploring how religious ideas and practices take form, are negotiated and contested within the private domain of the home, household and family. Bringing together ethnographic studies from different parts of the world, it explores the role of religious ideas and practices in migrants' efforts to sustain, create and contest moral and social orders in the context of their everyday life. The ethnographic analyses show how religious practices and imaginaries both enable engagement with new social settings and offer a means of connecting and reconnecting with people and places left behind. Offering a comparative perspective on the varying ways in which religious practices and notions of relatedness interconnect and shape each other, the book sheds new light on a comtemporary global world inhabited by mobile bodies and souls.

Acknowledgments
This volume is the outcome of two conferences on global families and religious practice, which were organized in connection with the research project “The Family as an Institution of Integration for Migrants and Refugees in Denmark”, funded by the Danish Research Council of the Humanities. The first conference was held at, and partly sponsored by, The Danish Institute in Damascus, Syria, October 31 – November 2, 2008; the second was held at the Department of Anthropology, Copenhagen, Denmark, April 27 – 28, 2009, and was organized and partly sponsored by The Migration Initiative, University of Copenhagen. We are grateful to both research institutions for financial and practical help and support in making these workshops possible.  We would also like to take the opportunity to thank Lotte Buch, Mu-hammad Kemal Doraï, Øivind Fuglerud, Yasmine Moataz Ahmad, Sari Hanafi and Maarit Forde for presenting papers at one or both of the two workshops and contributing to the discussions, and Kenneth Olwig and Robert Parkin for editing the language in some of the chapters. Finally, our sincere gratitude to the Aarhus University Research Foundation and the Danish Institute in Damascus for the economic support that made this publication possible.

Introduction:
Family, Religion and Migration in a Global World
MIK K ELRY T T ERA N DKA R ENFOGOLW IG
As long as people have been on the move as explorers, colonizers, trad-ers, tourists, refugees or labour migrants, religious ideas, practices and institutions have travelled as well. Religion itself also has a long history of movement personified by, for instance, Christian missionaries, Sufi-sheiks and Buddhist monks, or materialized in the form of various routes and sites where devoted pilgrims have commemorated religious figures. Lately religious ideas and imaginaries have been circulated worldwide, at an unprecedented speed, in emerging mediascapes of radio, television and the internet. During the present period of massive global migration, religious ideas, imaginaries, practices and identities seem to have become more important than ever, as displaced people adjust to life in new settings. Indeed, for many migrants religion provides a fundamental resource in their ongoing endeavour to create and recreate social relations and moral orders in a changing world.  In the decade following ‘September 11, 2001’ there has been growing interest in religious beliefs and practices among migrants in western soci-eties. Islam, and the religious life of Muslim citizens in general, has been especially scrutinized. A broad range of politicians, commentators and researchers have been concerned with understanding how religious ideas and activities may connect and mobilize people in transnational religious communities; and a number of studies have investigated various religious movements, organisations and networks, formal as well as informal. These studies have attempted to understand how religious practices, imaginaries and beliefs are transmitted by religious leaders; how people become radi-calized, and how organisations and media affect the life worlds of migrant populations in local western settings and/or in transnational networks. Much of this research, however, has been done ‘from above’, focusing on the global and public dimensions of religion and religious practices. Furthermore, with its focus on Islam there has been less emphasis on the significance of religion as a fundamental cultural and social phenomenon
