Muniba Saleem, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication and Media and a Faculty Associate at the Institute for Social Research. Dr. Saleem's research explores the role of media in interpersonal and intergroup conflicts. In the domain of interpersonal conflict, Dr. Saleem has explored how media violence can influence aggression and reduce prosocial behaviors (Saleem, Anderson, & Gentile, 2012a; 2012b; Saleem & Anderson, 2011). In the domain of intergroup conflict, Dr. Saleem has explored the role of media stereotypes in influencing aggressive perception and aggressive behaviors towards depicted groups (Saleem & Anderson, 2013). Current work in this area explores how media influences immigrants' ethnic and national identities, acculturation, trust and interest in the American government, and relations with majority members. Finally, Dr. Saleem's research has explored social psychological factors that can reduce interpersonal and intergroup conflict (Yu, Saleem, & Gonzalez, 2014; Juvina, Saleem, Martin, Gonzalez, & Lebiere, 2013).

Some US Muslims identify less as Americans due to negative media coverage

One reason for this could be due to the increased media coverage of negative remarks made by several U.S. presidential candidates during the 2016 election.

Scholars: Trump’s call to ‘ban Muslims’ is un-American

Trump’s dangerous assumption is that American Muslims are not American and certainly not citizens. Casting this group as un- or anti-American is un-American and unconstitutional, as Muniba states.
