Salaam, Love: American Muslim Men on Love, Sex, And Intimacy

Join the festive book launch party and reading for Salaam, Love: American Muslim Men on Love, Sex & Intimacy featuring editors Ayesha Mattu & Nura Maznavi, writers Randy Nasson and Stephen Leeper, Mohammed Shamma, Sam Pierstorff, & Ramy Eletrby, and comedian & MC of the evening Zahra Noorbakhsh. Light refreshments will be served.


On the heels of the groundbreaking collection Love InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women comes the other side of the story. In this book, American Muslim men speak openly for the first time about their love lives, offering frank, funny, and insightful glimpses into their hearts-and bedrooms. Twenty-two writers from varied ethnic, racial and religious perspectives take us along as they search for love and passion. These honest and provocative stories reflect the strength and diversity of both their faith community and of America.


Ayesha Mattu is a writer, editor and international development consultant. Nura Maznavi is an attorney and writer. Their first book, Love, InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women, was featured globally by media including the New York Times, NPR, the BBC, Washington Post, Guardian, Times of India, Dawn Pakistan, and Jakarta Post.

Our understanding of the integral mission of the Institute is distinctive in several key aspects. First, we attempt to integrate worlds of academic and grassroots knowledge. We believe that universities and social sciences are, for the most part, isolated from new practices and new movements, as they keep insisting on concepts and theories that are not adequate to new realities of creation and resistance. On the other side of this gap, activists are in serious need of new theories: theoretical knowledge (s) that can assist them in reflecting analytically on their practices, methods, and strategies for social change. At a moment when education is more then ever in danger of becoming enclosed and commodified, we have an urgent responsibility to defend universities as autonomous and critical places of knowledge production.
