Both a summative description of the field and an exploration of new directions, this multidisciplinary reader addresses issues central to the fields of Arab American, US Muslim, and Southwest Asian and North African (SWANA) American studies. Taking a broad conception of the Americas, this collection simultaneously registers and critically reflects upon major themes in the field, including diaspora, migration, empire, race and racialization, securitization, and global South solidarity. The collection will be essential reading for scholars in Arab/SWANA American studies, Asian American studies, and race, ethnicity, and indigenous studies, now and well into the future. Contributors include: Evelyn Alsultany, Carol W. N. Fadda, Akram Khater, Nadine Naber, Therí Pickens, Steven Salaita, Ella Shohat and Sarah Gualtieri.
