Joint CoDE/Sociology Seminar
Join us for this event, which is part of the CoDE Seminar Series.
In order to discuss Islamophobia we should not isolate if from other forms of racial discrimination. To this end this presentation will support Goldberg’s (2009) insistence that in addition to comparativist methodologies employed in the study of race, we also need relational methodologies. That is to say that where the former compares and contrasts, the latter also seeks to connect. Conceptually this means drawing on ideas of radicalisation to illustrate the conceptual and empirical relations between Islamophobia and other forms of racism, and in this presentation antisemitism in particular.
