March 28, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
WHEN: Tuesday, March 28th at 4:30 pm
WHERE: Haldeman 041 on the Dartmouth College Campus
WHAT: FREE Public Presentation: Salman Hameed: MUSLIMS, SCIENCE and the TRAVEL BAN
President Donald Trump has made statements and issued Presidential Executive Orders regarding Islam, Muslims and Arab immigrants to the US. A similar rhetoric has often been used to stigmatize people of Islamic faith.
Therefore, there is an urgent need to understand the dynamic of cultural interactions that define Muslim communities and the way these interactions are used in domestic and international politics. Gender-related issues and radicalization of Muslims – and even science – are topics that frequent the headlines. Dr. Salman Hameed will address these issues as well as questions from the audience.
Salman is a visiting Fellow with Dartmouth’s Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Engagement. He serves as the Charles Taylor Chair and Associate Professor of Integrated Science & Humanities and the Director of the Center for the Study of Science in Muslim Studies at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA.
