The Johns Hopkins University Program in Islamic Studies invites you to a virtual conversation on Islamophobia in the United States two decades after September 11, 2001. We focus on a new book by scholar and organizer, Dr. Maha Hilal, who tells the powerful story of two decades of the War on Terror, and how the official narrative has justified the creation of a sprawling apparatus of state violence rooted in Islamophobia and its worst abuses. Our conversation partners include Dr. Nazia Kazi, author of Islamophobia, Race and Global Politics, Lubna Azmi, JHU junior and community organizer in Virginia, and Dr. Homayra Ziad, Director of the JHU Program in Islamic Studies.
Dr. Maha Hilal (Researcher and writer on institutionalized Islamophobia and author of Innocent Until Proven Muslim: Islamophobia, the War on Terror, and the Muslim Experience Since 9/11)
Dr. Nazia Kazi (Stockton University)
Dr. Homayra Ziad (Johns Hopkins University)

Thursday March 31, 5-6.30 PM
Organized by the Johns Hopkins University Program in Islamic Studies and the Program in Racism, Immigration, and Citizenship (RIC).
