The 2018 Islamophobia Studies Summer Institute will focus on Orientalism and Colonial Imaginaries, which has its intensive manifestation in the contemporary French and European as well as in Trump’s efforts to demonize and otherize Muslims in civil society. The Institute will trace the various periods and initiatives that were directed at Muslim exclusion and the political, economic, social and ideological forces that brought them to the forefront. The French Islamophobia example is pertinent in the current period and to the examination of the Orientalist ad colonially framed structural and state initiated approaches directed at Muslim otherness.
