The Racecraft of Islamophobia: Public Rhetoric and the Racialization of IslamExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 — 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM EST

Frankie Condon

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. 

Frankie Condon is an associate professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. Frankie’s books include I Hope I Join the Band: Narrative, Affiliation and Antiracist Rhetoric and she is a co-author of The Everyday Writing Center: A Community of Practice (both published by Utah State University Press). She is currently completing research for her third book, Absolute Equality: The Radical Precedents of Post-Racial Rhetorics in the 21st Century. This work is funded by a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Frankie lives in Waterloo with her partner, children, two dogs, a cat, and a chinchilla named Sid.
