Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs

Islamophobia is commonly understood to be part of the aftershock of 9/11, but surfaced as a category at the beginning of the 20th century at the height of white supremacy. What does the re-appearance of Islamophobia tell us about white supremacy now?

Northwestern University Associate Professor of African American Studies Barnor Hesse will be joined by Salman Sayyid, Professor of Social Theory and Decolonial Thought at the University of Leeds, for a conversation about the history and globality of Islamophobia and why it is a form of racism.

This is part of the Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs’ Building Sustainable Futures: Global Challenges and Possibilities webinar series.
