 Ayaan Qani and Reem Faiq; a Somali Muslim Woman and Iraqi Muslim Woman want to discuss in a 90 minute anti-racism workshop how Islamophobia takes shape in online spaces. We will explore how racist rhetoric can lead to violent acts of terror as was the case for the Christchurch attacks where the online space of 4chan was utilised.

We also would like to explore how Islamophobia manifests in screen spaces. We will examine the role Islamophobic tropes play onscreen in reinforcing and further orientalising and vilifying Muslims.

This event is autonomous and open to BIPOC. Food will be provided!

Welcome to MUMS’ seminar series, proudly presented by the Education sub-committee! We are very excited to have Dr Trish Campbell speak on the topic: “All models are wrong, but some are useful – supporting the control of infectious diseases using modelling”.
Who would have expected to see our leaders on national television explaining policy decisions and ‘flattening the curve’ using modelling? The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened public awareness of the important role that models can play in managing transmission and control of infectious diseases. But it’s not all about COVID-19 — the classic infectious disease model has been around for almost 100 years and has been used to answer questions about many diseases in that time. In this talk, Dr Trish Campbell will provide an introduction to infectious disease modelling and the types of questions that such models can be used to answer. A real-world application of modelling used to inform decision making will demonstrate additional complexities that may need to be considered when formulating models.
The seminar will be dual-delivered on Zoom and in the JH Michell Theatre, Peter Hall Building.
If you’re planning to attend the seminar in person, please register here: https://forms.gle/hDHNxZAx9s3dUT3r7.
