Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys (National Endowment for the Humanities Award): Literary Reflections

Marshall University has been awarded the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf, a collection of books, films, and other resources that will introduce the American public to the complex history and culture of Muslims in the U.S. and around the world.

Literary Reflections, Developed by Leila Golestaneh Austin, The Johns Hopkins University

Over the centuries, Islam has provided a source of inspiration through which Muslims experience, understand, and guide their everyday lives. The readings for this theme can be seen as literary reflections on Muslim piety and communal concepts such as ethics, governance, knowledge, and identity. Each one reveals the transformation of faith and identity, as Muslims living at different times and in different places have interpreted Islamic traditions to meet their distinctive cultural realities and spiritual needs.
