A Zoom discussion on the essays from "Black Muslim Portraiture in the Modern Atlantic", The Muslim World Journal - Special Issue

These conversations focus on five Black art figures of Muslim heritage: (1) Ayuba Suleiman Diallo (2) Yarrow Mamout, (3) Joseph Cinqué (4) Omar Ibn Sayyid and (5) The Bashi-Bazouk. They offer various interpretations, but this is precisely the reason this conversation is so vital. Then there's the fact that these images are all of men and Black people, allowing us to question the male bias and racial assumptions in modern visual culture.

Michigan State University is hosting an international conference entitled “Measuring Muslim Publics: Curves, Columns, Spheres and Squares.” This conference investigates who is ‘the public’ in public opinion? What effect does it have on politics? These questions have received a great deal of attention by scholars of American and European contexts where their contributions have taken on a universalistic overtone. Are these generalized assumptions valid in other societies – notably in Muslim-majority contexts?

gypt today is facing unprecedented political, economic, and social challenges that are due to both internal and external factors. Since the 2013 coup and the resurgence of authoritarianism, Egypt has been locked in a state of political impasse with no real signs of change, while facing numerous economic and financial challenges ranging from significant levels of domestic and foreign debt to high inflation, deteriorating standards of living, declining tourism, and an outflow of billions of dollars following the devaluation of its currency.
