Talk of Alaska: Engaging Muslims

This week on Talk of Alaska we chat with Alaska Pacific University’s Engaging Muslims project coordinator — Dr. Regina Boisclair — about the project and about issues related to the interaction of America and the Islamic world.

Topics include why APU wanted to develop the project and its goals, Islamic concepts (including jihad) and issues of religious extremism and terrorism.

NOTE: The intended guest, John Esposito, was unable to join us as planned.
