SOPHIA ROSE ARJANA was appointed visiting assistant professor of Islamic Studies in 2011. Her teaching areas include courses on comparative religion and Islam. Her primary areas of research are monstrous Western representations of Muslim men, liberation theology, postcolonial discourse, Shiʿa and Sufi pilgrimage, and the holy sites associated with these traditions. Arjana has published work on several subjects in the study of Islam, including pilgrimage, Islamophobia, and Orientalism. Two of these contributions include an article in Shiʿa studies, a journal published by the Centre for Islamic Shiʿa Studies in London, and an article in ARTS: The Journal of the Society of Arts in Religion and Theological Studies. She has also published a book chapter on the trope of “Turning Turk” in Orientalist discourse, which looks at the role of race in Western discourse about Islam. In addition, she has two encyclopedia articles in print on Islamic subjects, and a third that is forthcoming. In 2015, Dr. Arjana saw the publication of her first book, Muslims in the Western Imagination (Oxford University Press); book chapters on Jewish and Islamic liberation theology and female and queer imams in North America; and a critique of Islamism and post-Islamism in relation to the theology of Ali Shari’ati.
