Salam alaikum brothers and sisters. I am currently en route to Canada, and will be doing a speaking tour Insha’Allah.
I will be presenting this topic at four universities [organiser’s description]:
“Breaking Faking News”
‘Abdullah al Andalusi will put Islamophobia on trial as its hateful discourses in today’s media are deconstructed and the counter-narrative truths about Islam & Muslims are presented’
This will be about deconstructing media portrayals and hateful ideologies and discourses about Islam and Muslims. Taking the common narratives seen in today’s media and then exposing them through detailed analysis. The goal here will be to also construct a true image of who Muslims are today and what they believe in. How do real Muslims differ from those portrayed in the media? What actually happens in a Mosque on a daily basis?
My current itinerary below is as follows:
Tuesday 6th February
Northern Alberta Institute of Technology [NAIT University, Edmonton]
The Shaw Theatre
Time 6 p.m.
Wednesday 7th February
University of Saskatchewan [Saskatchewan]
Thursday 8th February
