16th Annual Duke-UNC Graduate Middle East & Islamic Studies Conference: “Muslims, Motherland and Minoritization”
March 2, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
This conference aims to explore how categorizations by governing bodies create and influence ethno-religious identities as a component of subjecthood. Questions to explore include: How do the state and other actors influence religious and/or racial minority identity? What roles do power, gender, race, and sexuality play in these identity formations? How have standards of normativity been constructed and projected onto Muslim bodies?
The conference will feature two panels: “Race, Racialization and Monoritization” and “National Boundaries and Identity.”
