Fieldwork

My diary: 1 year, 100 cities, 75 mosques, and one question…

This archive documents my writings from the ‘Journey into America’ book and documentary project.  The writings here are my own personal opinions and don’t necessarily reflect the overall message of ‘Journey into America’.  Most of these entires are ‘notes in the field’, but you may also find published articles.  In addition, included here are short documentaries which I directed, filmed, and edited.  The question referred to in the title above is ‘What does it mean to be American?’  We dissected this question through the lens of Muslims in the USA.
