Come join us to hear IU School of Liberal Arts' Professor Edward Curtis speak about key themes from a series of books highlighted by a current program of The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).The NEH’s Muslim Journeys program engages the power of the humanities to promote understanding of and mutual respect for people with diverse histories, cultures, and perspectives within the United States and abroad. Through the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf, NEH and the American Library Association are providing a collection of twenty-five books, three documentary films, a one-year subscription to Oxford Islamic Studies Online, and a DVD of short films titled Islamic Art Spots to a variety of libraries across the country like IUPUI’s University Library. Dr. Edward Curtis is a Professor of Religious Studies at IUPUI and the author or editor of several books, including Muslims in America: A Short History, which was named one of the best 100 books of 2009 by Publishers Weekly. Sponsoring the event with the University Library are the library at Ivy Tech Community College and The Center for Interfaith Cooperation. Parking will be provided for community guests in the North Street garage at the corner of Michigan and Blake Streets, and there will be a reception to follow in the lobby of the Lilly Auditorium.
There are no upcoming dates for this event.
