The Racecraft of Islamophobia: Public Rhetoric and the Racialization of Islam

In the fifteen years since 9/11, the racialization of Muslim peoples in the United States and Canada has intensified. In this talk, Dr. Condon examines the rhetorical means by which diverse peoples worldwide – who share a faith tradition – have been increasingly represented as a “race” that may more easily be marginalized and criminalized in the west and around the world.

The Power of Information

The workshop provides a hands-on learning environment to explore using RefWorks (or other bibliographic management software) and any research database, with citation tracking and search alert capabilities, to maintain an accurate list of your own publications and track and collect citations of your work. The process will help you to identify the best citation tracking sources for your field, uses multiple sources to ensure all your work is tracked and maximizes citation counts. The workshop does not delve into author focused impact factors (e.g. h-index etc.).

ABSTRACT:

From January 2016, all insurance companies that are regulated within Solvency II framework will have to value their asset and liabilities using a market-consistent method. This paper studies market-consistent and sub-consistent valuations in incomplete financial markets with two types (type I and II) of market consistency. While market consistency of type I holds under fairly weak assumptions, the type II consistency, which is the usual definition of market consistency in the literature, holds only if the market prices are linear for fully hedged assets. We also characterize the market consistent and sub-consistent evaluators in several different ways. We discuss how market-consistent and sub-consistent valuations can be regarded as a robust approach to hedging and pricing in the presence of market imperfections such as market incompleteness and frictions.

Religious freedom has been increasingly under attack in France in the last 10 years. In 2004, religious symbols were banned in public high schools, and in 2011, covering the face in public spaces was prohibited. These measures were largely a response to, and have disproportionately affected, Muslim communities – especially Muslim women. They may also be jeopardizing pluralism, democracy, and certain conceptions of freedom.
