Evelyn Alsultany is a leading expert on the history of representations of Arabs and Muslims in the U.S. media. Her research, teaching, and lecturing are driven by a commitment to bringing Arab and Muslim Americans into the broader conversation about racial politics in the U.S. Professor Alsultany has served as an educator and consultant for Hollywood studios (Disney, Netflix, NBC Universal) on how to better represent Muslim characters. She is currently an associate professor in the Department of American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Professor Alsultany has won numerous awards for her undergraduate teaching, including the Arthur F. Thurnau professorship. Given the enduring salience of Islamophobia, she seeks to communicate her research to a wide audience within and beyond academia. Professor Alsultany maintains an active public speaking schedule, at the invitation of universities across the country and abroad.
