Identities: Understanding Islam in Cross-Cultural Contexts emerged from a collaborative program between students from the Museum of History and Holocaust Education at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia and students at the Ben M'Sik Community Museum at Hassan II University in Casablanca, Morocco. With support from the U.S. State Department's Museums and Community Collaborations Abroad (MCAA) program, these students conducted interviews, focus groups, and surveys with Muslim individuals living in the southern United States and in Casablanca. On this website, visitors can explore full transcripts of some of the interviews. In addition, students of both museums took photographs in response to a number of theme prompts, including migration, community, and identity. Notably, both the Moroccan and American students traveled to Washington, DC as part of this project, and American students traveled to Morocco as well. As a result, students photographed sites both within and outside their country of residence. Website visitors can view these photographs and read about the history of Muslim communities in both Atlanta and Casablanca.
