  Flying While Muslim: Gendered, Racialized Surveillance of Muslim American Men and Women at U.S. Airports  
(Special Event)

Dr. Saher Selod, Assistant Professor at Simmons College in Boston Massachusetts will be discussing her work on gendered racialization and surveillance of Muslim-Americans in U.S. airports. In this talk, she will be discussing her research with Muslim-Americans in the Chicago and Dallas-Ft. Worth areas and identify the ways in which this group is viewed as a threat to national security in airports, because of its religious identity. Dr. Selod will be utilizing a racial lens in demonstrating how airports have now become spaces where Muslim-Americans are denied the privileges associated with being a U.S. citizen.
