Roshni Sheth FLL-2D February 2, 2010 Dr. Mohja Kahf’s Lecture on Muslim American Literature and Culture Q/A Q: Why should Malcom X’s autobiography be included in Muslim American Literature, even though he was not a Muslim himself? A: In her lecture, Dr. Mohja Kahf addressed how to define Muslim American literature. She clarified that Muslim American literature must be identifiable as both Muslim and American. Immediately after saying this, she added that there are many works of literature that she wishes to add to the genre, but they do not meet both of these criteria. One example she came to numerous times was The Autobiography of Malcolm X , describing it as the iconic text of Muslim American literature. She explained by stating that the work includes American Sufi writing and a classically American element. Malcolm X’s work would have been included in the Black Arts Movement, as he was a black American Muslim.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
