Recently I was able to write up some thoughts about teaching Islam in my World Religion courses for the Wabash Center’s Teaching Islam Blog Series, “Islam, Media, and Religious Discrimination in America.”
I outline some issues and how I approach them through a few texts:
Jolyon Mitchell’s, “Religion and the News: Stories, Contexts, Journalists and Audiences”
Moustafa Bayoumi’s This Muslim American Life: Dispatches from the War on Terror
Peter Gottschalk’s American Heretics: Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and the History of Religious Intolerance
