Workshop: Race and Securitization in the Muslim Atlantic (II) – race and securitization in history, from Malcolm X to present

(Saturday 17.00, Session 3, Stream C, Conference Room)

Debates on securitization in Britain and America have almost entirely neglected
the crucial issue of race. But how is securitization experienced differently by Black Muslims, as compared to other Muslims? What legacies remain from programs such as COINTELPRO or historical suspicions of radical Black Muslim politics? How does race shape securitization differently in post-colonial Britain as compared to post- slavery America?

Please note: this is an interactive workshop where all participants will be expected to actively contribute to the discussion throughout. There is a maximum capacity of 20 participants per session, on a first-come-first-served basis.
