Spring 2009

Conference: Global Islam in Everyday America
April 3, 2009 University of Pennsylvania

Hosted by the Asian American Studies Program, the Middle East
Center, and the South Asia Center

As Islam is increasingly associated with worldwide debates on

terror, anti-West sentiment, and extremism, images of Islam
and Islamic identity circulating in the media have become
ubiquitous. Pictures of the veil, the turbaned terrorist, and
the children schooled in madrasas are conflated to a singular
representation of all Muslims. While Muslims face the
challenges of negative imagery, researchers know relatively
little about the lived experiences of Muslim Americans.
