Description:

Live Lecture with Dr. Arun Kundnani, author of The Muslims are Coming: Islamophobia, Extremism, and the Domestic War on Terror

Twenty years after the launch of the US-led War on Terror, are we any clearer in our understanding of what the War was and why it took place? Academic research has been piecemeal while critical journalists have tended to focus upon corporate interests in explaining the War. In this lecture, Dr. Arun Kundnani probes the War on Terror's neocolonial, racist, Islamophobic dimensions and locates its origins in a broader process of neoliberal restructuring.

This event is co-organized by Muslim Societies, Global Perspectives (MSGP) and Studies in National and International Development (SNID).
