Australian Muslim Musings

Impact: Cultural Impact

Impact story summary

The Australian Muslim Musings social media pages have allowed us to further engage and promote our research area ( Muslims in Australia) as well as our other initiatives.  The idea was to engage with the Australian public via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Our pages have attracted 5,464 unique followers on Facebook, 548 on Instagram and 239 on Twitter. The Facebook page has been particularly successful with followers including academics & researchers from across Australia, SOR teachers, artists, notable writers and members of the public largely within Australia. The pages also promote social harmony through sharing of local, regional and national histories.
