Online Discussion: “Understanding the ‘other’-the case of Muslim diaspora in Europe and America” with Dr. John Esposito
Understanding the ‘Other’
The case of Muslim Diaspora in America and Europe
In this virtual talk, Dr. John L Esposito will discuss the emergence of Muslim communities and the respective differences between the American and European Muslim experience. From there, the conversation will lead into the history of Islamophobia and how Islamophobia has changed and taken “new” forms that can be seen not just in the U.S., but globally as well. While understanding Islamophobia means a need to understand how it is connected and related to different insidious forms of hate that other communities endure, this talk will facilitate a conversation that leads us to look forward to our signals of hope.
