This course is about the history of Islam and Muslims in the United States, with special attention to the role of slavery, extractive labor, migration, race, nationalism, citizenship, and the media. We will learn the core tenets of Islam and what wide varieties of Muslims believe and practice as they relate to institutions such as kinship, spirituality, and family life. We will pay attention to inequalities in the distributions of resources; to how particular cultural practices are depicted; and to how these intersect with race, class,
national background, gender, and sexual orientation.
