Countering Islamophobia Online: New Strategies and Campaigns in Cyberspace  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Speaker: Sahar Khamis, Ph.D.

Muslims have been globally using the internet not just as a window to see the world and to be seen by the world, but also as a tool to push back against theirmisrepresentation and marginalization. Dr. Khamis tackles the efforts of modern Muslims to deploy digital media to resist their negative stereotypes, rectify their images, and spread correct awareness about their faith tradition and their multifaceted identities, amid a rising global wave of Islamophobia, through adopting new strategies and tactics, including online campaigns. Her talk unpacks the double-edged sword effect of social media, and digitally based discourse, in the contexts of spreading Islamophobia, on one-hand, and countering it, on the other-hand.
