Muslims in Public Discourse: Competing Narratives, Monsters, and Heroes

Dr. Sophia Rose Arjana will discuss the ways in which Muslims have been dehumanized in public discourse, resulting in the hostile climate American Muslims must contend with, while also being attentive to the ways in which Muslims are challenging this discourse through activist interventions. In particular, Dr. Arjana will focus on the graphic narratives that include comics, graphic novels, and webcomics-genres that have opened up new spaces for Muslims to voice their concerns about Islamophobia.
