TORONTO: Whole Conversations with Professor Khaled Beydoun
April 7, 2017 @ 6:30 pmThis is a free, public event but registration is required. You can register at https://www.wholeconversations.org/registration/
It is a pleasure to invite you to our Whole Conversations event with Professor Khaled Beydoun – an event to discuss racism, Islamophobia, racial and religious justice. Professor Khaled Beydoun will discuss the Muslim Ban and the emergence of Legal Islamophobia. Professor Beydoun argues that Legal Islamophobia is facilitated by legal and political baselines – deeply embedded in legal, media, and political institutions – that frame Islam as un-American, and Muslims as presumptive national security threats.
