A Reverence for Words: Understanding Muslim Cultures offers educators windows onto the history and social and political fabric of a variety of Muslim societies and cultures through an examination of their poetry, music, and visual arts. Through lectures, workshops, and local field trips, we will explore arts from diverse cultures, including Afghanistan, Iran, Morocco, Pakistan, Philippines, Senegal, Spain, Tajikistan, and the U.S, among others. The goal is to give educators—and ultimately their students—tools, content, and resources for deepening their understanding of Muslim cultures and of the contributions of Muslims to world literature, history, and culture.
