Being Here: Salaam series of events underway on campus

ALL WFU BannersA series of events known as “Being Here: Salaam” is underway at Wake Forest in September and early October.

The “Being Here: Salaam” project began Sept.  21 at Hanes Art Mezzanine Gallery in Scales Fine Arts Center with an exhibit of photographs by Todd Drake featuring Imam Khalid Griggs, associate chaplain, and other Muslims–many from North Carolina.  The exhibit, which draws from Drake’s “Muslim Self-Portrait” series, will continue until Oct. 9.  In that exhibit, Griggs is the only member of the Wake Forest campus community featured.

This week, portraits of 12 Wake Forest Muslim students by Drake have been hung across campus on large banners in highly visible locations, such as the atrium at Z. Smith Reynolds Library.  On each banner, a student self-identifies in a particular manner.  For example, one banner reads “being here as a linguist,” while another reads, “being here as a scientist.”

Office of Chaplain hosts panel discussion on Islamophobia

Chaplain Tim Auman introduces panelists Michaelle Browers, Imam Adeel Zeb, Manzoor Cheema, Jade Brooks, Dani Moore, and Khalid Griggs.

Chaplain Tim Auman introduces panelists Michaelle Browers, Imam Adeel Zeb, Manzoor Cheema, Jade Brooks, Dani Moore, and Imam Khalid Griggs.

The Office of the Chaplain recently hosted a panel discussion, “Islamophobia: The Anatomy of Difference,” aimed at creating greater interfaith understanding.

The March 2 event was held in Wait Chapel and attended by faculty, staff, students and community members.

“We want people to practice deep listening, to hear personal stories about what it means to be Muslim and what Islamophobia looks like in people’s everyday lives with the goal of opening the door for relationships that include our differences – even the subtle and the most difficult ones,” said Chaplain Tim Auman, who planned the event. In his introduction, Auman encouraged talking “constructively and compassionately about difference.”

Thursdays at Byrum

Thursdays at Byrum HallThe Provost and the Office of Undergraduate Admissions invite faculty and staff to Thursdays at the Porter B. Byrum Welcome and Admissions Center on March 7.

A wine and cheese reception will run from 4-4:30 p.m., followed by a program from 4:30-5:15 p.m. that will feature Laura Aull, Michaelle Browers and Alessandra Von Burg.

Aull, an assistant professor of English, will discuss her current book project, “Genre-based Rhetorical and Linguistic Approaches to University Writing,” which proposes a combined social and language-level framework for analyzing academic discourse. Aull will especially discuss this proposed framework in light of patterns of overstatement and understatement in early university writing.

Browers, an associate professor of politics & international affairs, will discuss her use of the “Reacting to the Past” pedagogy and how role playing and historical simulation can provide a means of exploring classic texts in the history of ideas.

Von Burg, an assistant professor and director of undergraduate studies in communication and interim director of American ethnic studies, will discuss the “Where Are You From?” Project, a series of video interviews about migration and mobility with citizens, residents, and immigrants who are part of Wake Forest and the surrounding community.
