Short Biography
Dr. Rasul Miller joins the UCI Department of History from Yale University's Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration where he served as a postdoctoral associate in the study of the racialization of Islam during the 2019-2020 academic year. His research interests include Black Muslim communities in the Atlantic world, Black radicalism and its impact on social and cultural movements in the twentieth century U.S., Black internationalism, and West African intellectual history. Miller's current book project, Black Muslim Cosmopolitanism: The Global Character of New York City's Black Muslim Movements, examines the Black internationalist origins of early twentieth-century Black Sunni Muslim congregations in and around New York City, and the cultural and political orientations that characterized subsequent communities of Black Muslims in the U.S. who built robust, transnational networks as they actively engaged traditions and communities of Muslims on the African continent.
