University of Southern California professor Dr. Sherman Jackson is both an American and a Muslim. That’s put him front and center on the debates over Islamic culture in the U.S. He’s been working to bridge the divides and provide answers he hopes both sides can use to understand each other better. On Tuesday evening, October 28, he brings that perspective to the University of Tennessee as a guest of the Religious Studies Department. He’ll speak on the concept of sharia and its interactions with U.S. laws and culture.
