Transnational Dialogue on Islamophobia
Start Date: 1/17/2019Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 1/17/2019End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description:

Join us for a transnational dialogue exploring the dimensions of Islamophobia in America, the United Kingdom and Canada. 

Islamophobia is a global crisis that manifests through Orientalist ideologies that legitimate systemic forms of Islamophobic racism and discrimination through state policies, securitization and violence. The rise of far-right extremism and white nationalism is a contemporary challenge in addressing the rise of hate crimes against Muslims (or those perceived to be) in many western nations where Islamophobia is supported by a wide-ranging ‘industry.’ In Canada, we are approaching the second anniversary of the Quebec massacre that left six Muslim men shot dead in a mosque after evening prayers these concerns shatter the fragile veneer of multiculturalism.
