Join Professor Rania Awaad, Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Stanford University School of Medicine where she is the Director of the Stanford Mental Health & Islamic Psychology Lab as well as Stanford University’s Affiliate Chaplain, in a conversation with Professor Khaled Beydoun.
Through trenchant analysis and direct testimony from Muslims on the ground, Beydoun’s work interrogates how Islamophobia acts as a unifying global thread of state and social bigotry, instigating both liberal and right-wing hate-mongering. Whether imposed by way of hijab bans in France, state-sponsored hate speech and violence in India, or the network of concentration camps in China, Islamophobia unravels into distinct systems of demonization and oppression across the post-9/11 geopolitical landscape.
This event is part of the class, “Psychology of Xenophobia” taught by Professor Awaad and it is open to the public. Kindly register.
