  Saving Muslim Women?: Islamophobia, Gender, and American Politics  
(Special Event)

Dr. Juliane Hammer's talk, entitled "Saving Muslim Women?: Islamophobia, Gender, and American Politics" would contribute to on-going campus conversations about religious discrimination and freedom, Islamophobia, and gender-based oppression and violence. The subject of Dr. Hammer's lecture prompts us to nuance resistive approaches to Islamophobic discourses in our midst by foregrounding the unique experiences of American Muslim women. This more inclusive, more dynamic approach to understanding and combatting Islamophobia can help modify and refine extant discourses of resistance by forcing us to consider how Muslim women are not only affected by Islamophobia, but also by unreflective means of resistance. In short, Dr. Hammer's talk will teach us how to be better allies in terms of understanding the histories and contexts of those we purport to support and in terms of allowing Muslim women a platform to articulate their own resistive strategies.
