Event Type: Adult

Date: 3/20/2019
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 In her lecture, Dr. Aitana Guia, Assistant Professor in European History at California State University Fullerton, first describes the composition, features, and history of the Muslim communities in Europe and the Americas. Dr. Guia explains that today’s “Muslim Question” resembles the old “Jewish Question” in that a minority religious group is singled out for its lack of assimilation and for being perceived as a threat to liberal democratic societies. Dr. Guia argues that the supposed Muslim takeover of Europe is a dangerous myth that obscures the contributions that Muslims make to strengthen civil rights and expand our limiting constructions of national identity.
