This course examines Islamophobia and anti-Muslim rhetoric and hate in the context of the United States. The course introduces historical, theological, cultural, legal, and institutional aspects of Islamophobia, and probes the ways in which Islamophobia intersects with racism, sexism, and religious exclusivism. The course also focuses on diverse strategies for combatting Islamophobia, and requires students to articulate their own, contextually responsive strategies.
Note: Enrollment limited to 25 students.
