Abstract

In the field of Communication Studies the majority of the research is focused on media contents about immigration. This article, however, approaches the immigrant population as audience. Our media consumption analysis is based on 10 in-depth interviews applied to a group of Muslim women, originating from Maghreb and with a period of residency in Catalonia of more than 5 years. The results show scarce presence of religious contents in their media consumption, a critical attitude regarding the journalist treatment about Islamand, in traditional families, a determinant role of the mother/wife was observed, particularly in reference to television viewing. In general, religion appears rather as culture than as dogma.
