Professor Fired For Showing Students Pictures Of Muhammad

  • A Minnesota university reportedly has fired a professor who showed her students images of the prophet Muhammad.
  • The New York Times reported that Hamline University adjunct professor Erika López Prater lost her job after featuring depictions of the religious figure despite her class being focused on Islamic art.
  • Prater reportedly preemptively placed warnings inside her course syllabus that the class would feature images of certain religious figures like Buddha and Muhammad. Students were asked by Prater to contact her with any concerns, but the New York Times says that none of them did so.
