Rhetoric of Hate: Islamophobia
This session discusses the history of Islamophobia in the American legal system and the racialization of Muslim identity. Current narrative typically discusses Islamophobia as a recent phenomenon that transpires at an interpersonal level. Professor Beydoun will lead us through historical policies that were federally institutionalized to exclude Muslim identity from society and deem it irreconcilable with American identity. This presentation will also examine the role liberals play in expanding Islamophobic rhetoric and policies.
