Muslim Americans in the Military with Edward Curtis
Since the Revolutionary War, Muslim Americans have served in the United States military, risking their lives to defend a country that increasingly looks at them with suspicion and fear. In Muslim Americans in the Military: Centuries of Service, Edward Curtis illuminates the long history of Muslim service members who have defended their country and struggled to practice their faith. Profiling soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors since the dawn of our country, Curtis showcases the real stories of Muslim Americans, from Omer Otmen, who fought fiercely against German forces during World War I, to Captain Humayun Khan, who gave his life in Iraq in 2004. These true stories contradict the narratives of hate and fear that have dominated recent headlines, revealing the contributions and sacrifices that these soldiers have made to the United States. About Edward Curtis Award-winning author Edward Curtis is recognized as a leading scholar on Islam and Muslims in the United States. His nine books on the subject have been called “essential,” “exemplary,” “approachable,” “groundbreaking,” “must-read,” “wonderful,” and “a model of clarity.” Curtis' Muslims in America: A Short History (Oxford, 2009) was named one of the best 100 books of 2009 by Publishers Weekly. He is Millennium Chair of the Liberal Arts and Professor of Religious Studies at the Indiana University School of Liberal Arts in Indianapolis. For more information, see www.edward-curtis.com.

Lessons from Gaza, Palestine with Mohammed Omer
2016 marks ten years since Israel imposed a military blockade on Gaza, adding an urgency to generate greater awareness of realities on the ground and create political movement to end the blockade in the United States. In the shadow of the election of Donald Trump as US president, the likelihood of more such attacks has increased and the lessons from Gaza for resisting occupation, state terror, and state-supported racism are all the more urgent. Mohammed Omer, 32, is among the younger generation of Palestinian writers who work to narrate their own reality, despite the isolation and global indifference to their lives under military occupation. Mohammed Omer began translating and writing at age 17 from Rafah (Gaza), and has since become an award-winning author and journalist covering life for Palestinians in Gaza for numerous publications including Al Jazeera, The Nation, Electronic Intifada, Middle East Eye, and numerous European news outlets. His latest book, Shell Shocked: On the Ground Under Israeli Assault will be available for sale during the event.
