|This collaborative event marks the publication of a new and ground-breaking collection of essays, Racialization and Religion, edited by Nasar Meer, which brings together the contemporary study of Antisemitism and Islamophobia.

Three eminent scholars featured in the collection will offer their perspectives on the following:
Brian Klug Interrogating â€˜New Antisemitismâ€™
Tariq Modood Islamophobia and the Struggle for Recognition
Pnina Werbner Folk Devils and Racist Imaginaries Prism:
Islamophobia and Antisemitism in the Twenty-First Century
These short talks will be followed by questions and answers and a general discussion around the issues raised by the collection.
The event will conclude with a drinks reception. Copies of Racialization and Religion will be available for purchase at a special discounted price.
