Visualizing Muslims Symposium

Dr. Zain Abdullah hosted a symposium about Yarrow Mamout at Temple University before leading those in attendance to the Philadelphia Art Museum to view the famous 1819 painting of Mamout. The talk focused on the connection of  two prominent Philadelphians, the painter Charles Willson Peale, and Yarrow Mamout.  The three guest speakers also addressed some major issues of our time: xenophobia and civility, religious violence and pluralism, exclusion and inclusion, immigration and the Muslim ban.
