Islam in America aims to create a learning community platform and welcomes papers addressing various religiously identified youth groups. We are soliciting balanced participation by diasporic Islamic communities – immigrant-origin as well as Black American and Latino American – in conjunction with other faith communities. It is our hope that such a collaborative learning effort will actuate a cross-pollination of best practices and theoretical, conceptual richness for understanding and cultivating healthy and productive religious and civic identities for youth. We welcome papers from across all academic disciplines.
