Islamophobia Today: Our Response
A Discussion on the Impact of Islamophobia in the 21st Century

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016
Goldwurm Auditorium at Icahn Building
1425 Madison Avenue
New York, NY 10029


The first annual Islamophobia Symposium aims to increase the visibility of Muslim in our healthcare systems and address the increasing violence and hate crimes against Muslims or people of color profiled as «Muslim.» We will be using Islamophobia as a case study to gain understanding about racism perpetuated with Orientalist and neo-colonial stereotypes in the United States. The conference seeks to address implicit and explicit biases that negatively affect medical care, unpack the role of media in escalating Islamophobic discourse, and understand the role of students and professionals in confronting Islamophobia in our society.
