Gendering Hate Through Religion: Islamophobia and Muslim Women

Wednesday, March 7, 7-8 p.m.

A-1045

This talk by Dr. Tanisha Ramachandran of Wake Forest University examines how Muslim Canadian women are racialized and gendered through hate crimes primarily triggered by material markers of religion. While these women differ in age, race, ethnicity, class, language and practice, the violences they experience are similar. An analysis of Islamophobia-related hate crimes exposes tension between the visibility of Muslim women as other/threat and a perennial colonial trope that equates their unveiling with rescue and liberation.

Presented by Department of Religious Studies
