Areas of Academic Interest: My Ph.D. or doctorate is in International Relations. I am, therefore, obviously interested in topics pertaining to the broad academic field of International Studies. In fact, 30 of the 33 different courses that I have taught at our university over the last 25 years, have been international in their scope and content. In the realm of research, most of my publications (books and articles) have been on Islam, Muslims, the Middle East, and the Muslim World.
