About The Course

This course explores the discourses, politics and real-life case scenarios that led to the racialisation of Muslims throughout modernity. Topics will include colonialism and imperialism, the role of music, film, philosophy and the internet in the construction of otherness, the Olympics of suffering, and the responses different groups have had against their racialisation. This class will be of interest to students exploring religion, anthropology, philosophy, Latin American and Caribbean studies, European studies, Middle Eastern studies, history and comparative literature.


Anti-Muslim bigotry and racism have risen to epidemic proportions in the United States and Europe. Al Balagh Academy
recognises the importance of equipping a broad array of religion scholars with the pedagogical knowledge, tools, and strategies to teach about, and against, anti-Muslim prejudice.
