Sampled: Beats of Muslim Life (Performance)

Performance and Lecture by Su'ad Abdul Khabeer

Monday, October 7, 2013 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Sampled: Beats of Muslim Life, is a performance based on ethnographic fieldwork among young Chicago Muslim activists who use hip hop to do 'Muslim Cool.'   'Muslim Cool' is a way of thinking about and being an American Muslim that has shaped hip hop’s preoccupations with race and lace and the history of Islam in America.  'Sampled' consists of a series of  theatrical scenes that use movement, theater and poetry to explore and analyze the key themes of Muslim cool: race, religion and popular culture.

Su’ad Abdul Khabeer is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology/African American Studies at Purdue University.   
Her research examines how American Muslim youth construct their religious, racial and cultural identities at the intersection of blackness and Islam.  

She is also interested in identity and subjectivity, diaspora and gender studies, performance ethnography, Islamic thought and practice, Arabic and Spanish language and literature.
