Muslim Journeys Visiting Scholar Talk

Immediately following the opening reception, Dr. Kambiz GhaneaBassiri, an Associate Professor of Religion and Humanities at Reed College and one of the national team of scholars who designed the Muslim Journeys program will present the first talk of our Muslim Journeys events. We are honored to host him here for his talk titled “Muslim Journeys and the Making of American History.” He will also say a few words at the reception about Muslim Journeys from a national perspective.
