Muslim Studies Resources: Muslim Journeys

A guide to Muslim Studies resources available through the Michigan State University Libraries

About MSU Muslim Journeys 2017-8

Please join us for our campus/community scholar-led book discussion series which, through a variety of genres, we will engage with literature and each other on the persistent and pressing topics of racism, war, and genocide.

Each book discussion event will begin with a short lecture from an MSU scholar. Next we break up into smaller groups, for discussions of the book, facilitated by graduate students. At the end of the evening, the full group reconvenes for final discussion and questions with the scholar.

Participants are encouraged to read the book ahead of time. Books will be “on reserve” at the MSU Main Library Patron Services desk, and available for purchase at Schuler’s and Everybody Reads.

FREE and open to the public! Light refreshments provided.

All events will be held at the MSU Main Library, Green Room, 4th floor West side.

There is free parking near the Main Library after 6pm, including in Stadium Lot 62E (employee lot) on Red Cedar Rd.

This series is co-sponsored by the Interfaith Clergy Association of Greater Lansing and the Islamic Society of Greater Lansing

Please contact librarian Deborah Margolis at or 517-884-0892 with any questions.
