Lecture: 'Islamophobia, the Media, and the War on Terror'
April 13, 2017
Integrative Learning Center
Room: HUB, 3rd Floor
UMass Amherst Campus
The lecture explores how the figure of "the terrorist" and the “war on terror” were invented by the media and political elites to justify increasing surveillance and violence domestically, and an illegal war in the Middle East internationally. Professor Deepa Kumar, of Rutgers University brings facts and rationality to a discussion normally dominated by emotion and misinformation.
The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
