By tracking the National American Islamophobia Index, researchers at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding have collected five years of data about how much the general public endorses anti-Muslim tropes. The facts, tell a different story, as this course demonstrates. ISPU’s researchers tracked American Muslim civic engagement trends and examined the level of support for religious activists to form coalitions with social and political groups. In this interactive course, you will study with national experts to gain a deeper understanding of the attitudes and policy preferences of American Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, white Evangelicals, the non-affiliated, and the general public. In doing so, you will make important distinctions about institutionalized versus interpersonal discrimination, while looking at the American Muslim experience in the context of a religiously diverse nation.
