Zareena Grewal is a historical anthropologist and documentary filmmaker who teaches American studies and religious studies at Yale. Her films include By the Dawn’s Early Light, about the scrutiny of the patriotism of American Muslims. Her research centers on issues of race, gender, religion and nationalism within a wide spectrum of Muslim communities in the United States. Her forthcoming book examines the global dimensions of Islam’s "crisis of authority," and examines the transnational teaching networks that connect American mosques with the intellectual centers of the Middle East.
