Join Vanderbilt MSA along with the Wesley Fellowship as we commemorate the end of Islamic Awareness week with our cap off event! We will be hosting two renowned guest speakers, Dr. Todd Green and Dr. Jonathan Brown, who will address issues regarding the misconceptions about Islam. Namely, the focus of the event will be Islamophobia in the West. As always, we will be catering FREE delicious dinner and the event is open to all Vanderbilt students as well as members of the Nashville community!

In the first portion Dr. Green, who is an Associate Professor of Religion at Luther College and Vanderbilt alum, will broadly cover the main causes and consequences of Islamophobia that have spanned Western history, and will also give attention to the unique factors that characterize the post-9/11 era. As we switch gears to the second portion after dinner, Dr. Brown, the Alwaleed bin Talal Chair of Islamic Civilization in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and Director of the Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim Christian Understanding, will cover the root of Islamophobia with regard to commonly misinterpreted verses of the Quran and life of the Prophet.

This is sure to be a great scholastic event and a great opportunity to hear some of the most acclaimed speakers on the topic!
