Wed, 16 Nov 2011 18:00 in Community Engagement

Where: Star Education Centre, 116 Hyde Road, M12 5AR
Time: 18:00
With: Dr Muzammil Quraishi, University of Salford

Abstract

This talk will briefly outline the history of how Muslim populations have become the subject of a discourse which identifies them as deviant, criminal and a risk to western democracies. Specific examples from criminological research will further contextualise the role Islamophobic and racist constructions play in marginalising Muslims in contemporary British society.
