This workshop analyzes images of Muslims in the media, and the history and manifestations of Islamophobia in literary, media, social and political discourse both pre- and post-9/11. Using case studies, we will interrogate the negative stereotypes of Muslims, as well as of the West, that contributes to Islamophobia, and deconstruct monolithic views of both. 

We will look at various definitions and perspectives on Islamophobia today in Europe and in the United States, in the context of the “War on Terror” and discuss the impact on and appropriate responses to this discourse.
