Campus Community Book Project Selection Announced — Call for 2024-25 Nominations
The Campus Community Book Project has announced their 2023-2024 selection and call for nominations for the 2024-2025 cycle.
During the upcoming academic year, the Book Project will read Hate in the Homeland: The New Global Far Right by Cynthia Miller-Idriss. The book shifts the conversation about radicalization from the how and why to the when and where, to the life stages and places where extremist beliefs are cultivated and socialized. In suggesting interventions and antidotes, Miller-Idriss puts forward a “public-health approach to hate” that reduces vulnerabilities, educates on inequity and injustice in the United States and internationally and addresses feelings of alienation and isolation to ultimately locate and reorient towards shared values of belonging and home. Dr. Miller-Idriss is a sociologist and professor in the School of Public Affairs and in the School of Education at American University and runs the Polarization and Extremism Research & Innovation Lab (PERIL).
Looking ahead to 2024-2025, the Book Project is accepting nominations on the theme of health equity and justice. In continuing the Book Project’s 20-plus year commitment to focusing a DEI lens on contemporary issues, they look forward to building community, sharing dialogue and learning collectively towards the advancement of health equity and justice for all. Nominations can be submitted via email by July 24, 2023 to email@example.com, and should include the nominated title, author, and optional note on why the book is being nominated. Nomination and selection criteria can be found on the Book Project website.
