In the spring of 2017, students from the Department of Anthropology and the Clark Honors College developed a photo exhibit for classes that explored the histories, identities and experiences of Muslims living in the United States. To complete their project, students conducted personal interviews with local Muslims. The photo exhibit provides excerpts from those interviews, along with the portraits or images that the interviewees felt revealed something particular of their experiences living in America. The purpose of this exhibit is to visually capture and illustrate the diversity of Muslims in the US. Additionally, the exhibit is intended to explore what it means to proudly carry the burden of an identity that has been racialized and made into the “other,” specifically since the tragic attacks of September 11th.
