Dr. Steve Howard is known for his work focusing on social change in Africa and social movements in the Muslim world. He encourages students to explore these topics themselves over the course of the semester in his class Media in the Muslim World. This semester, students Olivia Sumner, Alex Lumley, Michelle Michael, and Margaret Storrs all participated in interviewing, producing, and editing for their video “Muslims in Athens.”
The video features a handful of local residents interviewed at the Islamic Center of Athens regarding Muslim attitudes and experiences with current events. Topics include the Muslim-American experience, misconceptions about Muslims and the Islamic faith, and media portrayal of Muslims. To view the video, click here.
