CGSLP Co-Sponsors The CSRR Islamophobia Lecture Series with Professor Joseph Massad

October 4, 2018 at 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm

The Center for Gender, Sexuality, Law and policy is proud to co-sponsor the second lecture in  the Center for Security, Race and Rights Islamophobia Series, “Islam in Liberalism” with Columbia Professor Joseph Massad!

American anxieties about intolerance, misogyny, and tyranny are projected onto Islam as part of the broader history of European’s use of Islam as a foil in Western liberalism. Professor Massad presents a rich historical record of Christian and liberal discourses aimed at curing Muslims of their supposed illiberal ways.
At a time when Muslims and Islam are frequently misrepresented in the media and public discourse, Islam in Liberalism offers a timely and insightful historical context of current events.

Joseph Massad is a full professor at Columbia University where he teaches and writes about modern Arab politics and intellectual history.
