Professor John Esposito took on a master’s program and later a PhD – specialising in a strange and unpopular subfield of a subfield – Islam. To contextualise, during the 1960s, Islam wasn’t a hot-button topic like it is now.
Prof. Esposito talks with host Mohamad Zaoud about his unlikely journey to become Gerogetown University’s Scholar of Islam. He shares his formula for success, how his upbringing helped shaped his mindset, and delivers a powerful & pragmatic message to the next generation of Muslims.
