Islamophobia and Park 51: The “Othering” of Muslims in America

THIS THURSDAY 4:30pm SHANKLIN 107
Refreshments included!

Have you ever had questions about Islam but felt too afraid to ask? Have you ever wondered how 9/11 affected America’s perception of Muslims but thought it was a too “touchy” subject? Have you felt veryconfused lately because of contrasting portrayals of Park51 in the American media?

What better way to have all of your …questions answered than to attend a panel discussion where Wesleyan’s Muslim chaplain, Sister Marwa, Prof. Ahmad (religion department) and Prof. Lim (government department) will respond to anonymous questions submitted by Wesleyan students relating to Islam, Islamophobia, and Park51!The entire student body is invited to attend this important event. Please submit any relevant questions that you would like to ask the panel to dgodfrey@wesleyan.edu by midnight on Nov 3. If you cannot attend you are still encouraged to submit any questions that you might have.

Btw *extreme sarcastic tone* SHOULD Americans fear Islam? -_-

Please do NOT form your opinions JUST on this video…
