2015 Spring Colloquium

Addressing Islamophobia: Dispelling Myths to Break Down Barriers

Host: Penn Charter Kurts Center
Date: Thursday, April 9, 2015
Time
: 9:30am-11:00am 

Speaker: Amer Ahmed


From his press packet: The post-9/11 era in the U.S. has exposed a significant degree of prejudice and bigotry towards Muslim people. In 2012, a violent hate-motivated attack on a Sikh temple in Wisconsin highlighted the fact that Islamophobia is not just an issue that only impacts Muslims in America.  Furthermore, the racist backlash against the first Indian-American winner of Miss America 2014 unveiled how widespread negative sentiment towards anyone who is confused to be Arab and/or Muslim.   Meanwhile, underscored by the horrific murders of three UNC students, there continues to be widespread racial profiling, hate crimes and bullying throughout the country.  This program will benefit participants interested in these questions and more, providing needed context to bridge divides.
