Migration & Racialization Session at the Faculty of Arts' Interdisciplinary Day - Congress 2016

Date & Time:
June 1, 2016 | 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Location:
The Taylor Family Digital Library, Gallery
Speaker:
Tania das Gupta (York University), Jasmin Zine (Wilfrid Laurier University), Sunera Thobani (University of British Columbia)

Organizer and Chair: Dr Amal Madibbo (Associate Professor, Sociology)

This session examines how hegemonic gendered and racialized images impact visible minority immigrant communities' sense of belonging and security. 

We will explore how discourses and representations of gender and Islamophobia; race; immigrant status and ethnic/geographic background

serve to other some immigrant groups and place them outside spaces of belonging. The session will also shed light on the ways by which these

immigrants counteract dominance in order to create a place for themselves in society and center their narratives in the Canadian national story.
