AbstractThis thesis answers the question: In how far are the concepts authenticity and liminality applicable to the conversion stories of Dutch Muslimas and which role do the reactions of non-Muslims play in these conversion stories? Conversion has been a turning-point in most Muslimas lives. After converting to Islam they have found inner peace and the truth. The reactions of non-Muslims are both positive and negative. According to the Muslimas, the negative reactions are mostly based on prejudices and misconceptions. The negative images of Islam in the media strengthen the thinking in terms of us and them in the Netherlands. Larger media tend to focus on the large turning-points of the converted Muslimas, while smaller and social media end to focus more on the changes in the daily lives of these women.
