This course focuses on the realities, experiences and outlooks of Muslim Americans in the United States. We will explore the complexity of Muslim American identity through its institutions such as mosques and religious and community schools, as well as cultural, artistic expressions, including music, song and literature. We will also examine Muslim American communities within the prevalent framework of identity politics, looking at differences between converted and born Muslims, the nature of their political consciousness and activism, and responses to political racism against Muslims, particularly but not exclusively in the aftermath of September 11th, 2001.
