Muslim Identities and Cultures

The Muslim Identities and Cultures working group studies Muslim identities and cultures from multiple standpoints, including but not limited to: race, gender, queer (of color) theory, nationalism, critical cultural geography, etc. The primary objective is to study not only the impacts of 9/11 on Muslim individuals and communities through these lenses, but also the “racialization” of Muslims in the United States and abroad. In particular, the working group has been researching the intersections of “anti-terrorist/terrorism” initiatives around the world. The group is interested in how these intersections represent Muslim identities, especially those of Muslim women.
