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!
