The Department of Anthropology presents

Terrorcraft: The Production of a Racialized Terrorist Threat in the United States

Professor Deepa Kumar, Media Studies, Rutgers University

Professor Kumar is the recipient of the Dallas Smythe award for her engaged scholarship and the Georgina Smith award for her work on gender and race equity. Her latest book is Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire (2012), which examines how a racialized terrorist threat is produced, and traces the ways in which the “Muslim enemy” has been mobilized to suit the goals of empire. In her next book, on the cultural politics of the US national security state, Prof. Kumar will pay particular heed to the ways in which gender, race, and class intersect in the reproduction of imperial structures.

This event is free and open to all. RSVP is required.  Only those who have registered will be permitted entry when the venue is full. For further information, please contact the Department of Anthropology at (416) 978-4805.
