Event Details

For the past two decades, Islamophobia has increasingly played a prominent role in presidential election cycles, with the 2015-16 cycle exhibiting some of the most egregious examples of anti-Muslim rhetoric and policy proposals to date. What explains this trend? How have presidents and presidential candidates over the past two decades contributed to or resisted Islamophobia in their campaigns? How have anti-Muslim narratives and stereotypes in presidential politics evolved and adapted in the years since 9/11?

Todd Green, associate professor of religion, will address these questions and will offer reflections on what we can expect in the 2020 election cycle when it comes to the instrumentalization and politicization of Islamophobia.

This event is sponsored by the NE Iowa Peace & Justice Center and Interfaith in Action at Luther College.
