Nur Allah
2018 NEH Scholars Visit Nur Allah Islamic Center with Imam Mikal Saahir and Judge David Shaheed

What does it mean to be both Muslim and American? You are invited to explore this fascinating and important question this coming summer. You will read compelling texts and conduct engaging field trips as you study the diverse facets of Muslim American identity, both as grounded in the past and as experienced in the present. As an NEH Summer Scholar, you will reflect on and discuss thirty primary source documents and two major academic monographs; visit two mosques; and prepare teaching tools to integrate this information into your existing classes.  The seminar does not promote any one religious or political perspective; its purpose is educational.
