Join us for our next Approaches to Ethnic and Indigenous Series talk with Evelyn Alsultany.
Evelyn Alsultany is an Associate Professor in the Department of American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California. Her research, teaching, and lecturing are driven by a commitment to bringing Arab and Muslim Americans into the broader conversation about racial politics in the U.S. In her lectures, she seeks to educate audiences on the history of stereotypical representations of Arabs and Muslims in the US media, its consequences as evident in public opinion and government policies, and alternatives to foster greater human respect and dignity.
Prior to her position at USC, Alsultany was an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor and an Associate Professor in the Department of American Culture at the University of Michigan where she co-founded and directed of the Arab and Muslim American Studies (AMAS) program.
