Arabs and Muslims in the Media: Race and Representation after 9/11 – A Review

I just published my first in a new series of reviews for Religion in American History blog on scholarship covering Islam in America. The first book discussed is Evelyn Alsultany, Arabs and Muslims in the Media: Race and Representation after 9/11 (New York University Press, 2012).

I situate the relevance of the book within the context of recent media controversies, including Alice in Arabia and Tyrant.

Here is a blurb:

Evelyn Alsultany’s Arabs and Muslims in the Media: Race and Representation after 9/11 does a great job of situating media makers and consumers within the context of social and political consequences of media production.

You can read the entire essay here.

Stay tuned for more.
