The Consortium for Educational Resources on Islamic Studies (CERIS) is inviting students from any department to submit papers they have written for a course that may cover the arts, sciences, humanities, social sciences or professional disciplines. These can relate anywhere from people and politics to religion and philosophy to culture and society in historical and/or contemporary contexts.

Secondary Level

Charlotte E. Lott, professor of economics, Chatham University, 2007 Fulbright Hays Group Projects Abroad participant


As a result of this lesson, students will be able to:

• Find in the media key issues of concern to Muslim communities
• Identify key issues of the American community
• Understand different perceptions of each others’ communities
• Define the terms “perceptions” and “dialog”
• Explain commonalities or issues where dialog may be able to occur


Curriculum Development Grants Program

The CERIS Curriculum Development Grants Program is designed to enable faculty members from CERIS institutions to pursue curricular development and enhancement projects related to Islamic Studies. Islamic Studies is understood, as expressed in the CERIS mission statement, to encompass many languages, literatures, and disciplines; and extends from the 7th century to the present, and across broad geographical areas of the world.
