Call for Papers: 8th Annual Paris Islamophobia Conference

06 Nov 2021


*Promoted by the University of Pittsburgh*

The 8th annual conference invites papers to interrogate the unique French brand of Islamophobia and the persistent intrusion into Muslims’ religious life, space and communal expressions through the use of an extreme version of secularism. Papers may take a historical examination of France’s colonial past and the violent entanglements in Muslim majority states that continue to shape relations in the current period. Additionally, papers may take on the contemporary developments in France and provide analysis based on academic or scholarly specialization or utilize a comparative with other regions i.e. Belgium, Canada, Netherlands, UK or USA.

Abstracts are limited to 300 words, a one paragraph (100 words) biography to be used for the program, if the paper is selected and a photo for the website promotions.
Abstracts are due by November 6, 2021
Response to abstracts by November 15, 2021
