Mirza Family Chair Inaugural Symposium: “On the Muslim Question”

Friday, March 25, 2022 9:00 am EST

1030 Jenkins Nanovic I Zoom

This event is part of the Mirza Family Chair Inaugural Lecture and Symposium.

Muslims in both Europe and North America have been figured by both extremists and mainstream politicians as “outsiders,” and “enemies.” It is no surprise then that they face a range of discriminatory practices in these contexts. Some theorists have framed the discrimination they have faced as akin to the discrimination faced by Jews in Europe in the past and present. This panel will explore whether or not these forms of discrimination are as similar as such an analogy suggests. Join us on Friday, March 25, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. ET.

Speakers:
Anne Norton, Stacey and Henry Jackson President’s Distinguished Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania
