war on terror

Snehal Shingavi on Fear, Hatred, and State Terrorism

A discussion led by Sheikh Islam Mossaad and Professor Snehal Shingavi on Islamophobia and State Violence. The talk highlights how Israel uses Islamophobia to justify its aggression and violations of international law. Israel is not alone, however, in using this narrative of the Muslim terrorist to rationalize militarization of police, mass surveillance, and the broader war on terror. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session. Sheikh Islam currently serves as Imam for the North Austin Muslim Community Center. He is a graduate of the University of Texas and his Islamic education came through sitting with people of knowledge and scholars from an early age until the present. He is a dynamic speaker who engages audiences and genuinely enjoys open and respectful discussion. Professor Snehal Shingavi received his Ph.D. in English from the University of California, Berkeley in 2008 after earning BAs in English and Economics from Trinity University in 1997. He won the Mellon Fellowship in Humanistic Studies, has published articles in several journals including International Socialist Review, and has appeared as a commentator on programs such as Hardball on CNN. He teaches Global Indian Literature and Literature of Islamophobia at the University of Texas.
