Islamophobia: Historical and Global Perspectives on the 5th Anniversary of the Quebec City Mosque Massacre

Friday, January 28, 2022
5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Panelists: Dr. Adnan Husain, Dr. Hatem Bazian and Amira Elghawaby

In the five years since the Quebec City mosque massacre that killed 6 Muslim worshippers and wounded many more, the grave problem of Islamophobia has grown only more serious in Quebec, in Canada and beyond. Why? How has it manifested, what are the forms Islamophobia has taken? The panel takes a historical and global approach to analyze the wider significance and deeper relevance of this tragic event to the politics and experience of Muslims not only locally in Quebec but in Canada, North America, Europe and elsewhere. Also, the panel explores how Islamophobia has functioned culturally and politically in the broader history of Europe and North America. By understanding these dimensions of the problem, we can hope better to combat this form of racial and religious bigotry.

Co-sponsored by Muslim Societies, Global Perspectives (MSGP) and Muslim Awareness Week (MAW).
