About Us

Arab American Studies is the academic arm of the Center for Arab American Studies, which focuses on scholarship, research, and engagement with the Arab-American community in Dearborn and Metropolitan Detroit. Faculty in Arab American Studies are actively engaged in research and scholarship on current issues facing Arab Americans as well as Arab American history and culture. As teachers, we seek to help students understand the role of Arabs in American society, the role of America in Arab society, and the vibrant interplay between them.
