Visiting Speaker to Lecture at IU on Race, Religion

(BLOOMINGTON) – Visiting speaker Schirin Amir-Moazami will speak at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Global and International Studies Building, at Indiana University where she’ll explore how a set of complex dynamics influences the formation of race and religion as scientific categories of modern knowledge production.

Amir-Moazami is an assistant professor at the Department of Islamic Studies at Free University Berlin and a principal investigator at the Berlin Graduate School for Muslim Cultures and Societies.

The lecture is free to attend.

Her lecture asks how current politics of knowledge production on Muslims and Islam in Europe are predicated on historically constituted epistemologies of governing populations and how the politics of measuring are related to the formation of race and religion as scientific categories of modern knowledge production.
