The UC Berkeley Center for Race and Gender Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project (IRDP) invites you to join us free of charge at the Sixth Annual International Islamophobia Conference April 23-25, 2015 on the legendary Berkeley campus, the location with a reputation for activism and for challenging ideas and authority. The focus of the conference will be assessing the Islamophobia studies field from a broader multi-disciplinary and transnational perspectives.
As the Islamophobia Studies Field has witnessed rapid expansion in the past 15 years, an assessment and exploration of the research already done, in progress and existing gaps needing scholarly attention is the focus of the 6th annual conference. This year’s conference committee is attentive on creating a collaborative approach to forging more critical scholarship in the Islamophobia Studies Field and expanding the existing networks of researchers across disciplined and the geographical areas of the world.
The conference will highlight genres of scholarly and artistic production which includes Scholars, Researchers, Artists, Poets, Media Producers, Artists, Activists and Community Organizations to foment a mutli-medium engagement in the Islamophobia Studies field.
