“How Does It Feel To Be a Problem?

Dr. Moustafa Bayoumi will present “How Does It Feel to Be a Problem? Arab-American Life and U.S. Foreign Policy” at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in the State Farm Room of MTSU’s Business and Aerospace Building.
Bayoumi, a professor at Brooklyn College, is co-editor of “The Edward Said Reader” and author of “How Does It Feel to Be a Problem? Being Young and Arab in America.”
This book, which won the American Book Award, chronicles the lives of seven young Arab-Americans living in Brooklyn in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America, and the heightened surveillance and prejudice they experienced.
Bayoumi’s address, which is free and open to the public, is the second of two “Muslim Journeys Bookshelf” events sponsored by the James E. Walker Library and MTSU’s Middle East Center this fall.
