posted Jun 25, 2012, 5:51 AM by Interfaith WS

        Wake Forest University’s Middle East and South Asia Studies Program is organizing a major academic conference on “Muslims as Minorities” October 18-20 at the University. 

        “This conference and the events around it aim to enrich our understanding of the experience of Muslims as minorities and with minorities as a significant, widely misunderstood facet of our common human condition in an ever-changing, increasingly global world,” the announcement says. “It draws on the incredible number of local scholars working on this topic and taps into heightened interest on the subject, as we witness a growing and increasingly diverse Muslim population in the United States and North Carolina.”
