Islamophobia Lecture Series

Islamophobia: Its causes and consequences, how to counter it in daily life

Monday, February 20, 2017 – 7:30pm

Free and open to the public.

250 Knowlton Hall, 275 West Woodruff Avenue

In recent years, prejudice towards and discrimination of Muslims has reached a fevered pitch. Beyond blatant physical attacks or acts of vandalism, polls show that negative sentiment towards the followers of Islam runs deep, and has manifested itself in a range of ways. In an evening discussion that addresses this pernicious phenomenon, author Nathan Lean discusses its causes, its consequences, and highlights some of the underlying dynamics that have animated it in recent history. Looking ahead, he also offers key insights on how students, scholars, and members of community at large can counter instances of prejudice and help realize a world that values pluralism and diversity.

Nathan Lean is a writer and scholar of the Middle East. He is the author of four books, including the award-winning The Islamophobia Industry. His work has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, the New York Daily News, CNN, Salon, and the Christian Science Monitor among others. He lives in Washington, D.C.

Parking: Tuttle Garage. It is a short walk to Knowlton Hall, room 250, where the presentation will be hosted.

Co-sponsors: The Multicultural Center; the Near Eastern Languages and Cultures Department; the Mershon Center for International Security Studies; the John Glenn College of Public Affairs.
