Spanning the period from the late 18th to the early 21st century, this course examines how Muslims have grappled with such quintessential themes of American life as race, freedom, justice, and politics. Each of these themes is examined through comparative lenses, reflecting in particular on African American, Jewish, Catholic and Buddhist experiences.
