DisOrientation: Arabs and Muslims in the American Imagination

In collaboration with the Arab American National Museum and the Michigan State University Museum, Alsultany is creating an online exhibit scheduled to be completed May 2011. This project has offered her the opportunity to make her scholarly expertise in representations of Arabs and Muslims in U.S. popular culture accessible to a broad audience. The exhibit will showcase stereotypical representations of Arabs in U.S. popular culture from the early 1900s to the present and, drawing on key concepts in humanities scholarship, it will provide audience members with tools to identify, understand, and analyze the making of stereotypes.
