Section Information for Fall 2017

Issues related to Muslims in the US continue to be part of a national debate about the role of religion in public life. In the post-9/11 era, Muslim life in the United States has been considerably securitized and fundamentally changed at sociological and theological levels. This course examines the category of “American Muslims,” with all of its ethno-racial and theological diversity, and seeks to explore the history of Islam in the US as well as the current dynamics shaping American Muslim communities. From conversion to inter-generational shifts in religiosity and identity construction, the course explores a variety of issues from multiple disciplinary perspectives.
