Islamophobia and Emancipation

6th Nov 2023

In this symposium, Prof. Salman Sayyid, AbdoolKarim Vakil and Dr. Kawter Najib will discuss Islamophobia and emancipation, showing how Islamophobia shackles the figure of the Muslim and giving some pointers to their emancipation. They will bring this into conversation with debates around the definition of Islamophobia and the rise of the concept of “anti-Muslim hatred” as a replacement for Islamophobia.

The presentations will be followed by questions from the host/discussant based on the presentations given. This will lead into a Q&A from the floor.
