CO-SPONSORED EVENT

Tariq Modood is the Founding Director, Research Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship, Bristol University

 

In 1997, the Runnymede Trust in London recognized Tariq Modood’s alternative definition of Islamophobia as anti-Muslim racism in the context of a multicultural society. Since then, this definition has emerged as the dominant interpretation of Islamophobia in the social sciences and public discourse alike. In this presentation, Modood will argue that Islamophobia and Muslim studies should not marginalize Muslims as a group that stands apart from the society within which they live in. Instead, they should be recognized as an integral part of a multicultural community.

‘Global and International History: The Economic Dimension’

Financial, economic and political-economy issues have played a fundamental role in world development and continue to do so. They involve multiple agents besides the nation state; they prompt refined policy analysis; and they challenge historians to turn to the broadest range of sources and demand interdisciplinary analysis. Con-IH 16 seeks to discuss cutting-edge studies that take up the dimensions of economics in international,regional, and global historical study, for any era from Antiquity to the present, and proceeding outward from any world region.

Since its inception in 2001, the Harvard Graduate Student Conference on International History (Con-IH) has developed into an annual event, organized by graduate students in International History at Harvard University. Click here to learn more.
