- Friday, 4/21, 8:30am – Sunday, 4/23, 5:00pm, 8th Annual International Islamophobia Conference
UC Berkeley School of Law – Boalt Hall
215 Boalt Hall
Islamophobia is most commonly understood to be a problem that impacts adversely on Muslim minorities living in Western countries
The conference addresses questions of the relationship between liberalism (and neo-liberalism) and Islamophobia. We particularly will have presentations that respond to the following themes:
-What is the relation between the discourse of ‘take our country back’ and the post-Cold war liberal political order?
-What intellectual and political resources and possibilities now exist for imagining the West in contravention of Islamophobia?
-Is the presence of the non-white, culturally unassimilable, rights bearing subject a political problem for western liberalism?
-What is the relationship between neo-liberal economic policies and rise of Islamophobia?
