In this course, we will learn the basic tenets and early history of Islam, and study Islam in America, with attention to the current issues facing Muslim-Americans in the U.S. Five issues that we will especially focus on in reading and discussing Muslim-Americans' lives will be issues of identity, religion, race, nationality, and ethnicity. Our study of this urgent topic will be against the backdrop of misperceptions and stereotyping of Muslims by the mainstream media, especially since 9/11, as well as the targeting of Muslims as terrorists.
