Muslims in America

South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) 88 Annual Conference

Date: November 4, 2016 to November 6, 2016

Venue: Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, Jacksonville, Florida, US

This panel intends to examine the works of Muslim American poets, novelists, jazz musicians, punks, hip hop artists, hipsters, filmmakers, and visual artists.

Muslims are woven into the American fabric, from the generations of Moorish slaves accompanying the conquistadors in the Southwest, enslaved West Africans such as those in the coastal Gullah communities, Arab laborers in the Midwest factories in the late 1800s, twentieth-century immigrants fueling the medical and technology sectors, to those currently displaced by wars and natural disasters.

Papers are invited that explore the diverse compositions of Muslim American identities in literary and cultural texts. In their articulation of assimilation, alterity, dissent, and transgression as Muslim Americans, do these writers and artists find the American Dream a utopia or dystopia?
