Conference Description:

This annual academic conference will serve the needs of scholars and activists researching, writing and speaking on Islam in America.

This inaugural conference in 2011 whose theme for the year is “representation”. We are particularly concerned that since September 11th many of the voices that draw the attention of scholarly and popular media have little concern for representing Islam in America in its long history, internal diversity and contributions to American society.

Some questions guiding our conversations are:

What major themes have characterized news and media representations of Islam and Muslims?

Who is authorized to speak about Islam and Muslims, and by whom are they authorized?

What is the place of Islam in the American religious landscape?

What is the intent of funding particular people and places?
