What People Are Saying
“No scholarly community can function when certain members are either unseen or stereotyped within it. This book is an urgent call for change. May it inspire the beginning of a conversation that UVA so pressingly needs to convene.”—Noah Salomon, Associate Professor in Islamic Studies, Department of Religious Studies, University of Virginia
“Through extensive interviews and careful analyses, this book shares the stories of young Muslim college students in America today. Often othered, misrepresented, and misunderstood, the Muslim students interviewed here show their strength and resilience. Taken together, the interviews illustrate the diversity of American Muslim communities and provide for us the very real and tangible impacts of anti-Muslim rhetoric.”—Tamara Issak, Assistant Professor, St. John’s University
About This Book
Visibly (and Invisibly) Muslim on Grounds: Classroom, Culture, and Community at the University of Virginia offers a unique insight into the experience of Muslim students studying and living on an elite university campus. The powerful stories shared by these students, however, will no doubt resonate across all campuses across the United States. In these pages, you will not only hear students speak about the impact of direct and subtle Islamophobia but about how these same students respond by building communities of support. And you will understand how pathways toward inclusion and understanding can be created across a university campus. Throughout, you witness students navigating difficult circumstances with the insight, care, and understanding too often missing from mainstream news coverage. As such, this book is vital reading for university administrators and professors.
