Feindselige Blicke. Beschimpfungen, nicht nur online, sondern im Alltag. Rassismus gegenüber Menschen, die als muslimisch wahrgenommen werden, ist trauriger Alltag.

Referenten sind u.a.:

  • Dr. Floris Biskamp, Universität Tübingen
  • Professor Dr. Beate Küpper, Fachhochschule Niederrhein

  • Medien und Antimuslimischer Rassismus
  • Gender und antimuslimischer Rassismus
  • Strategien zur Bekämpfung von antimuslimischem Rassismus
