Muslims in America Bibliography

For a variety of reasons, Muslims in America are in the public spotlight. As a result, the demand for information and analysis on Muslims and Islam in the United States has risen. At ISPU, we conduct objective, solution-seeking research that empowers American Muslims to develop their community and fully contribute to democracy and pluralism in the United States. It is our hope that these materials will allow a host of interested parties to do the same.

How to Be a Muslim: An American Story

Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
White Whale Bookstore 4754 Liberty Ave, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15224
Sponsored By:

Book reading and discussion with author Haroon Moghul.

Moghul was thrust into the spotlight after 9/11, becoming an undergraduate leader at New York University’s Islamic Center forced into appearances everywhere: on TV, before interfaith audiences, in print. Moghul was becoming a prominent voice for American Muslims even as he struggled with his relationship to Islam. In high school he was barely a believer and entirely convinced he was going to hell. He sometimes drank. He didn’t pray regularly. All he wanted was a girlfriend.

Saving Lifta: Home, Memory, and Future in the Last Nakba Village

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 - 12:00pm
4130 Wesley W. Posvar Hall, University of Pittsburgh
Sponsored By: 
Pittsburgh University Center for International Studies

At a time of mass displacement across the Middle East, Palestinian refugees of the 1948 war—and their descendants—remain at the center of the world’s longest-running, unresolved refugee situation. Approaching seventy years since the war that would become known as both the Israeli War of Independence and the Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe), the longevity of the Palestinian refugee issue is widely linked to the failure of the official “peace process” that began in the 1990s with the purported aim of resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
