An Evening with Dr. Muna Ali
Recent Ph.D. Muna Ali will present some of her findings from her dissertation research. The title is “Generation Next: Young Muslim Americans Narrating Self While Debating Faith, Community and Country.” This ethnographic study examines how American-born and/or raised offspring of both converts to Islam and immigrant Muslims in the Phoenix and Chicago metropolitan areas define self and community, how they negotiate fissures and fault lines (ethnicity, race, class, gender, and religious interpretation) within their communities, and how their faith informs daily life and envisions a future.
