Providing students with an opportunity to discuss current events related to Muslims and U.S. politics, this course focuses on the ways Muslims and Islam have become a central topic in political debates among liberals and conservatives. It will offer a general introduction to (1) the Islam religion and core beliefs and practices that define Muslim communities; (2) a history of Muslims in U.S. politics from debates about whether a Muslim could be president to banning Muslim immigrants from the U.S.; and (3) the ways Muslims participate in U.S. public affairs.
