Take a spring semester course that includes a week of travel to NYC on spring break!
— FROM ROOTS TO RAP: ISLAM IN AMERICA —
Course: HIS 195 – fulfills a Humanities requirement
Program Leader: professor Maheen Zaman
Travel Dates: March 12-19, 2021
We will walk in the footsteps of Malcolm X on our tour of Muslim Harlem as we study the vast diversity of Black Muslim traditions – Nation of Islam, Sunni Black Muslims, West African businesses, and Latinx Muslims of East Harlem. At New York University’s nationally acclaimed Islamic Center, located in the Village, we will observe the Friday prayer in the context of a campus community integrated with its surrounding professional workforce.
Beyond these two sites in Manhattan, we will venture out to Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx to learn from organizers and advocates of immigration rights and civil liberties, investigate the process of social disappearance of working class Muslims in the face of gentrification, conduct oral histories as paired researchers across the five boroughs, sit with disciples of a female Sufi master and experience the ambiance of their spiritual practice, visit the museums of Natural History and the Metropolitan Museum of Art to critically compare natural and cultural representation of Islam and Muslims, take a ferry ride to Elis Island, Statue of Liberty, and compare that immigration narrative with the memories of exclusion curated at the Museum of the Chinese in America, and so much more.

On Friday, September 18th, the study abroad/away office will be holding our first ever virtual study abroad/away fair! We will be using the career services software “Handshake” for Auggies to set up one on one appointments with study abroad providers, in addition to joining group presentations. Representatives will be live from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Top tips to get the most out of Augsburg’s Virtual Study Abroad/Away Fair:
(1) Set up your profile in Handshake, making sure to provide more details on yourself and what you are looking for.
(2) Browse the Program Preview pages at engage.augsburg.edu/globalauggies/ to see which programs will be at the fair – you can see quick videos, photos of the representative you can meet, and more! This should help you narrow down a few you’d really like to talk to.
(3) Start building your schedule! You can book 1-1 meetings or group sessions with some of the representatives, where you can learn more and ask questions about the programs. You can add sessions on the day of the fair, but many times may be booked – so make your preferred schedule early!
