 8th Annual Conference on Islamophobia

Islamophobia and the end of liberalism?

April 21st – 23rd, 2017

Booth Auditorium, Boalt School of Law

University of California, Berkeley

The conference addresses questions of the relationship between liberalism (and neo-liberalism) and Islamophobia. We particularly welcome presentations that respond to the following themes:

  • What is the relation between the discourse of ‘take our country back’ and the post-Cold war liberal political order?
  • What intellectual and political resources and possibilities now exist for imagining the West in contravention of Islamophobia?
  • Is the presence of the non-white, culturally unassimilable, rights bearing subject a political problem for western liberalism? 
  • What is the relationship between neo-liberal economic policies and rise of Islamophobia?

Othering Islam and Muslims in America

Since its founding, the United States of America has constantly struggled to define its identity and to classify who belongs and who are the ostracized. From the first days of the republic, African Americans and Native Americans were not part of “We the People” and were denied full membership in the newly formed society, while white women, though included as members in the racial category, were denied equal rights and enfranchisement under the Constitution.

The structural exclusion and otherization was written into the DNA at the country’s foundation and continues to be the modus operandi utilized regularly to navigate and construct a national identity. Tracing U.S.’s history takes us through a long, windy and torturous road of otherization, violence and exclusion that affected every group that has made its way to the country’s shores: from Italians, Jews, Polish, Russians, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, Koreans, Mexicans, Cubans, El Salvadorans and all the way up to the present-day Syrians, Afghans, Somalians, Nigerians, Yemenis and other Arab and Muslim immigrants and refugees. Consequently, otherization in good old U.S. of A. is as American as apple pie!
