Seminar

Filed under: Seminar Topics — allison @ 5:53 am

Hi everyone,

I’ve been working on my seminar, which is about post-911, our invasion of Afghanistan, and our reactions at home (including bias towards muslim americans). I’ve found a few good texts to use, but if anyone has any suggestions, that would be great.

I wanted to share this site with sarah, who I believe is doing her seminar on war, right?

http://www.ala.org/ala/yalsa/profdev/dealingtragedy.cfm

This is a great site if anyone ever needs a book on a national disaster/tragedy. There are also some great book lists on Katrina and terroroism (im hoping to find something useful from the later! )

The only problem is that I’m finding that some of the links don’t work and I can’t figure out why. Hopefully we will still be able to find the lists.

This website is also helpful. http://www.teachablemoment.org/high.html

Let me know if anyone has any ideas for books about  post-911, our invasion of Afghanistan, Afghanistan in general, and our reactions at home (including bias towards muslim americans).

  1. Hi Allison,

    I found an interesting title on amazon.com called “Being Muslim (Groundwork guides)”

  2. Sorry Allison,

    I accidentally hit the submit button. I’m going on three hours sleep. Here’s the URL: http://www.amazon.com/Muslim-Groundwork-Guides-Haroon-Siddiqui/dp/0888997868.

    From the description, this book seems to deal with post 911 issues, especially prejudice against Muslims.
