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!
