What Politicians Say About Muslims

Sat 8th Sep, 2018

7.30pm - 9.00pm
Isra Centre, Level 3 128-132 South Parade Auburn

We are familiar with politicians’ negative talk about Muslims which seek to spread hostility and ignore positive contribution of Australian Muslims. What is lesser known is that politicians also come to the defence of Muslims. This lecture is based on a study of Australian parliamentary debates from 2006-7 when Australian values were on the agenda. It will discuss the different types of Islamophobic political discourses but also how other politicians contest these.
