Changing how we think about Islam in a post-9/11 world
Syed Adnan Hussain
Assistant Professor, Department of Religious Studies
Islam is Canada’s fastest-growing religion—yet our public discussion about Islam and Muslims is too often mired in stereotypes and misunderstanding.
That’s why a voice like Dr. Hussain’s is critical, locally and nationally. His thoughtful analysis, lived experiences, and critical eye add important context to the national and local dialogue about Islam, in media, in politics, and in our communities. And by bringing his classes to the public at the Halifax Central Library, he's providing a forum for learning and discussion that’s putting Islam front and centre in Halifax’s civic sphere.
