Muslim Journeys Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys

Muslim Journeys Bookshelf

About the Muslim Journeys Project

The Muslim Journeys project is jointly produced by National Endowment for the Humanities, in cooperation with Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies at George Mason University and American Library Association Public Programs Office.

Support for this program was provided by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.

Muslim Journeys is a component of NEH’s agency-wide Bridging Cultures initiative, which engages the power of the humanities to promote understanding and mutual respect for people with diverse histories, cultures, and perspectives within the United States and abroad.

Program Information

The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf grant was awarded to the James E. Walker Library in January of 2013.  The purpose of this grant is to present the MTSU community with resources representing diverse perspectives on the people, places, histories, beliefs, practices, and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

This grant provides books, DVDs, and electronic resources to MTSU. Information and access to these resources can be found on this page.

The James E. Walker Library is also pleased to Partner with the Mideast Center to present two programs about Mulsim-American stories.
