Description:

This 1.5-day symposium will bring scholars of Islam, international and public affairs, education, race, and law together with practicing journalists and attorneys for a sustained reflection on the conventions and tropes that pervade contemporary public discourse on religion, with particular attention to coverage of Islam and Muslims in the United States. In particular we aim to foster a critical conversation about Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) initiatives, ‘radicalization,’ and journalistic coverage of so-called religious violence. We will explore new and creative strategies of writing and reporting on these issues
