How Does it Feel to Be a Problem? Religion & Islamophobia in America

May 1, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Free

Featuring Samah Choudhury and Hina Muneeruddin

This talk will go through some manifestations of Islamophobia today and discuss how they help us understand the intersection of race, religion, and gender in America. These scholars will discuss contemporary cultural and political images concerning Islam and Muslims and look at the “culture of difference” experienced by Muslim Americans today. What kind of trauma does this culture of difference inflict? What happens when they speak and we don’t listen?
