AUTHOR EVENING WITH DAN GLAZEBROOK – ‘DIVIDE AND RUIN: THE WEST’S IMPERIAL STRATEGY IN AN AGE OF CRISIS
Author Dan Glazebrook joined us for a discussion around his newly published book on what he understands to be the development and refinement of ‘western’ strategy in relation to the Global South.

IS ISLAMOPHOBIA A FORM OF RACISM?

The rise of Islamic discourse and Islamophobia in Europe has become very prominent over the last ten years. This lecture is particularly relevant as Islamophobia is not widely accepted as a form of racism. For example, the French government opposes and actively blocks Islamophobia as racism on the grounds that racism is colour discrimination.

Ramon Grosfoguel provides a concise history of the emergence of racism in order to more clearly define the notion of racism, historically not semantically.

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! Cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.”
