Islam in/and America Workshop

Islam in/and America: New Directions of Research

March 25-27, 2011

This workshop was the third in a series convened on this topic also held at Princeton University (February 2008), and Columbia University (January 2010). The goal of this workshop was to “complicate the emerging notion of an “American Islam” and to investigate ways in which the terms “America, “Islam”, and “American Islam” are and have been practiced, debated, encoded and altered.”  The next workshop of this series will be held at Yale University.
