Anouar Majid, Director of the Center for Global Humanities, published an essay titled “The Ways of the Nassara” in the Middle East Journal, a publication of the Middle East Institute in Washington, D.C.. Majid’s essay is in a special issue of Viewpoints on Edward Said's defining book, Orientalism.  Titled “Orientalism's Wake: The Ongoing Politics of a Polemic," the issue brings together the world's leading scholars on the subject.

Kidd. American Christians and Islam: Evangelical Culture and Muslims from the Colonial Period to the Age of Terrorism in the journal Reviews in American History.
