National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar
Muslim American History and Life
Indianapolis, Indiana, July 8-26, 2019
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 life, 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 develop teaching
tools for your classroom. The seminar does not promote any one
religious or political perspective; its purpose is educational.
