Title: Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire
by Dr. Deepa Kumar
(Associate Professor of Media Studies and Middle East Studies, Rutgers University)
Author of Outside the Box: Corporate Media, Globalization and the UPS Strike and Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire
Dr. Kumar will discuss how racism is as central to contemporary American imperialist policies now as it was when war was waged against North America’s original inhabitants. She explores historical encounters between Islam and the west, debunking the myth that these can be understood in terms of a “clash of civilizations”.
