CANCELLED - GISC Event. Muslims in the Digital Age: Podcasting & Illustration with Misha Euceph and Emmen Ahmed at the Room Project
Misha Euceph’s podcast “Tell Them, I Am” explored the lives of Muslims in the public eye. The LA Times called it “quietly revolutionary,” by the LA Times, the New York Times said it was “hypnotic listening,” and it is one of TIME’s 10 best podcasts of 2019. Emmen Ahmed created portrait pieces for each episode of “Tell Them, I Am.” Her artwork plays with traditional Mughal miniature paintings, Islamic art, the female form, and Bollywood imagery to hold a mirror up to the South Asian-Muslim-female experience in the West.
