Check out this summer course on Islam and Muslims in America.
Explore contemporary Islam and Muslims in a post-9/11 and post-Trump America in this summer course! Using ethnographic studies and digital media content, we will discuss how the lived experience of American Muslims interacts with "theoretical" and "normative" conceptions of Islam, and whether these interactions eventually create a distinctive "American Islam."
