Muslim American Identities, Past and Present


In 2015, the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture hosted sixteen K-12 school teachers for a three-week seminar exploring study the diverse facets of Muslim American identity, both as grounded in the past and as experienced in the present. Summer scholars read thirty primary source documents and two major academic monographs; heard from two visiting scholars and visited two mosques; and created individual research projects. You can view examples of their research projects in Teaching Resources
