Islamophobia and Park51: The “Othering” of Muslims in America

The Interfaith Justice League and ResLife present a panel discussion where Wesleyan’s Muslim chaplain Sister Marwa, Prof. Attiya Ahmad (Religion department) and Prof. Elvin Lim (Government department) will respond to anonymous questions submitted by Wesleyan students, relating to Islam, Islamophobia and contrasting portrayals of Park51 in the American media.

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. You can also fill out a “question card” at our table in Usdan during lunch on Tuesday and Wednesday. If you cannot attend you are still encouraged to submit any questions that you might have.
