Su’ad Abdul Khabeer is a scholar-artist-activist who uses anthropology and performance to explore the intersections of race and popular culture. Her latest work, Muslim Cool: Race, Religion and Hip Hop in the United States (NYU Press 2016), is an ethnography on Islam and hip hop that examines how intersecting ideas of Muslimness and Blackness challenge and reconstitute US racial orders. Khabeer’s written work on Islam and hip hop is also accompanied by her performance ethnography.

This event is part of the Center for Professional and Applied Ethics’ series Being Muslim in America and is cosponsored by a Chancellor’s Diversity Grant and CLAS Speakers’ Fund.
