Do you want to run our prestigious annual Muslim Protagonist symposium? Do you want a chance to host one of Columbia University’s biggest events of the year? Do you want to see literature used as an agent of social change — to give voice to the voiceless, write your own story for the minority narrative? Apply to serve on the Planning Committee! Last year’s weekend symposium featured the likes of Reza Aslan, Mohsin Hamid, Hollywood filmmaker Kamran Pasha, Al Jazeera-America Co-Host Wajahat Ali, Sundance Award Winner Musa Syeed, and many more, gathering an audience 300-strong from all over the Northeast and bringing in press from The Huffington Post and Pakistan’s Express Tribune. We have a stellar lineup of writers (currently under wraps) for Feb. 22nd, 2014, and working on the Planning Committee allows you the ability to work closely with these renowned artists, writers, and protagonists in their creative fields. Applications are due by October 3rd at 11:59 PM. Interviews for the top candidates will be conducted as early October approaches – spots are limited!
