Mr. Reza Aslan
CBS News Analyst, best-selling author and expert on Islam
Apollo room, Student Union
The first young Muslim intellectual to come on the scene in years, Reza Aslan brings a new, passionate, and much-needed perspective to the national discussion regarding Islam. Aslan is a fellow at the University of Southern California's Center on Public Diplomacy and Middle East analyst for CBS News. In his internationally acclaimed book No god but God: the Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam, as in his lectures and writings, Aslan explores the intricate interplay between faith and politics in the Muslim world, presenting Islam as an ever-evolving faith and culture currently in the midst of a cataclysmic internal battle for reform and modernization.
