With the support of Humanities Nebraska, the UNO Islamic Studies Program and Sustained Dialogue are organizing a lecture by and follow-up discussion with Dr. Rosemary Corbett of Bard College.
The lecture will take place in the College of Public Affairs and Community Service (Room 132) between 6:30 P.M. - 8:00 P.M. on Thursday, Nov. 1.
Dr. Corbett’s talk is titled, “Can Religious Minorities Gain Acceptance in the U.S. through Community Service?”
Rosemary R. Corbett, a faculty member with the Bard Prison Initiative, focuses on the social and political incorporation of Muslims in the United States, and of the politics of race and religion more broadly. She received her doctorate in 2010 from Columbia University and has held Mellon fellowships there and at the Center for the Humanities at Tufts University. She is the author of Making Moderate Islam: Sufism, Service, and the "Ground Zero Mosque Controversy" (Stanford, 2017), as well as co-editor with Katherine Ewing of the forthcoming Modern Sufis and the State. Her publications may also be found in the Journal of the American Academy of Religion, American Quarterly, Journal of Religion and American Culture, Comparative Islamic Studies, and elsewhere.
This lecture is part of “Dialogue with Muslim Communities in Omaha” project. This is the sixth event in the series.
