Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys (National Endowment for the Humanities Award): Points of View

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.

Points of View, Developed by Deborah Amos, National Public Radio

The drama of conflict, chaos, and war come to Western readers in daily newspaper stories, but the news gives us scant details about how people live their lives in Islamabad, Fez, Cairo, or Tehran. Through the titles in “Points of View,” readers will experience Islamic culture through memoirs and novels representing a diverse geography and some of the best works
in contemporary storytelling.
